Allows designers to easily determine long-term deflection of PVC pipe given specified embedment (backfill) and pipe material properties. Users can vary inputs such as pipe size, wall thickness, soil properties, live loading conditions and depths of cover. PVC pipe has a long-term deflection limit of 7.5%.
Thrust restraint is needed to address changes in diameter or direction. The Thrust Restraint Calculator enables engineers and designers to quickly determine the thrust restraint needs for PVC piping systems. The PVC pipe industry offers a full line of thrust restraint products to meet every project need. Please contact one of our Regional Engineers for specific product and design questions.
