Base resin density refers to the density of the natural PE that has not been com- pounded with additives andlor colorants. As these pipes undergo stress relaxation, the apparent modulus decreases and more deflection occurs.

Research has documented that awa mate- rials, such as PE, polybutylene, polyvinyl chloride, and asbestos cement and elastomers, such as used awea jointing gaskets and packing glands, are subject to permeation by lower molecular weight organic solvents or petroleum products. When heat fusion joining, it is essential that the heat fusion joining procedures used are qualified by making heat fusion joints with the procedures, and then con- ducting tests on the joints to demonstrate joint integrity.

The pulling rate is usually slightly faster than the extrusion rate to draw down the wall. Flexural Properties The flexural strength of a material is the maximum stress in the outer fiber of a test specimen at rupture. A practical and conservative approach for designing PE pipe is to ignore arching and assume that the dead load on the pipe equals the weight of the column or prism of soil directly above the pipe.


And because PE is a viscoelastic material, the ring bending stress decreases over time1. Before lifting or transporting the load, forks should be spread as wide apart as practical, forks should extend completely under the load, and the load should be as far back on the forks as possible. Nonpalletized pipe, fittings, or fabrications should be unloaded from above qwwa lifting equipment and wide web slings, or from the side with a forklift. The fitting joint is made by inserting a barbed nipple into the pipe bore and tightening a clamp or draw- ing a clamp over the pipe outside k55 over the barbed nipple.

Readers should use the latest editions of the Stan- dards that are referenced. Socket fusion involves 1. Numerous studies have been conducted over the years relative to the biological implications of PE pipe.

These stabilization systems are designed and selected with the intention of pro- viding long-term protection of the PE polymer from oxidation and thermal degradation. Roberto Sandoval vasquez marked it as to-read Feb 06, Materials with relatively high levels of elongation are indicative of highly ductile performance as pipe.

Fahim marked it as to-read Feb 20, Butt fusion involves 1.

Zubair marked it as to-read Awwaa 05, However, these considerations are not taken into account by AWWA at any time. The magnitude of the surge pressure depends on the stiffness of the pipe material as well as the pipe dimensions.

This reduces the effective pipe bore and restricts flow. Only properly trained personnel should operate unloading equipment.


Colebrook developed the following empirically derived equation for predicting the friction factor in the transition region between smooth and fully turbu- lent flow: Assume the conditions of the design window section are met.

A fun- damental understanding of the production process and the quality assurance and qualification testing inherent j55 PE pipe should allow the designer or installer of these products to use them with confidence for their intended awda in potable water zyxwv applications.

At these higher stress levels, the materials begin to deform such that the original dimensions are not recoverable. The material continues to deform indefinitely at an ever decreasing rate.

The strain in this region is referred to as the 5m5 strain because it is reversible. For this rea- son, the allowance for recurring surges is lower than that for occasional surges. The absolute roughness 4 of PE pipe is 0. Smaller fittings may be shipped in enclosed vans or on flatbed trailers depending on size and packaging.

Field socket fusion tools are hand-held, and for larger sizes, two persons are usually needed to make joints. Minor scratches or scuffing will not impair serviceabil- ity of the PE pipe and fittings. If smoke tarps are required, they should be in place covering the load when it arrives. Pressure ratings are for water at The native soil has a modulus of soil reaction of at least 1, psi and the unit weight does not exceed pcf
