Development of ductile iron in the s initiated research into design of ductile iron pipe to take advantage of the superior flexibility, strength, toughness, impact resistance and corrosion resistance of awwx new metal. In the late s, a formula by Dexter Brackett, distribution engineer for the City of Boston, was adopted by the New England Water Works Association as their standard. The work of Prof. Spangler and others at Iowa State University on flexible conduit is the basis for principles that have been applied extensively by the designers of flexible underground pipe.
As noted in the following paragraph, ductile iron design employs flexible conduit principles since the internal pressure relieves the external load. The following is a list of the organizations c1151 to in this and other sections awsa this website by abbreviation.
ANSI/AWWA C/A | Standards Council of Canada – Conseil canadien des normes
A standard, manual or revision is developed by swwa subcommittee assigned to that task. The design was based on a variation of the Brackett formula by J. In order to take advantage of modern metallurgical science, better testing methods, improved production control, materials with better physical properties, and improvements in manufacturing methods, the A21 Committee has a continuing program for keeping its standards revised to include the latest proven developments.
Laying conditions and properties of the iron in the pipe are also factors involved in the design. Fanning and included a variation in the outside diameter for the different classes of pipe. Overview Characteristics Thicknesses Weights Standards.
Standards Council of Canada
The subcommittee prepares and submits the document to the Standards Committee for approval. Trench load consists of the earth load on the pipe plus any transient load resulting from traffic over the trench; internal pressure consists of the design working pressure plus an additional allowance for surge pressure.
Other applicable standards generally cover specialties or refer to ANSI standards.
The AWWA standards employed a system of class designations applied to specific wall thicknesses in awaw 4″ through 84″ inclusive for a range of hydraulic heads. Prior toat least two unofficial documents dealing with pipe design were acknowledged by AWWA.
The following standards are related to ductile iron and gray iron piping and other products, but are generally not directly applicable to the manufacture of AMERICAN pipe and fittings. A brief review of the older specifications in chronological order may help define their usefulness, as well as help in the appreciation awwq the improved modern standards.
With the advent of ductile iron pipe and its flexibility, this additive method of design became obsolete.
Fairchild and James P. The formula may be stated as: Abbreviations of Organizations The following is a list of the organizations referred c115 in this and other sections of this website by abbreviation.
What is five times five? The formula may be stated as:. Message Add specific model info if applicable.
Actually, the first standard covering centrifugally cast pipe was issued by the U. Additions for casting tolerance are included in the design thickness.
Fanning, Dexter Brackett, I. Mining and Dredging Mining Dredging. Kirkwood, as chief engineer for the Brooklyn Water Works, developed a design for cast iron pipe which was a variant of the Barlow formula. The basic design of pipe with a different outside diameter for each class was followed in modern specifications until the revisions. The first of these used thicknesses for pipe determined by averaging the thicknesses used in a large number of American cities.
The Committee is responsible for the development of standards and manuals for ductile iron pressure pipe for water and other liquids and for fittings used with such pipe. AWWA revised their standards in d151 incorporate a new method of designing cast iron pressure pipe. Although the NEWWA standards did not provide a formula for pipe thicknesses, the Wawa formula was used in determining the thicknesses recommended.
It embodies the basic principle for design of a cylinder for internal pressure.
