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. Answer the following question: Other applicable standards generally cover specialties or refer to ANSI standards. The formula may be stated as: Continued research on ductile iron pipe reflects through these updated standards the advancements in metallurgical technology and manufacturing skills.
Overview Characteristics Thicknesses Weights Standards. Abbreviations c15 Organizations The following is a list of the organizations referred to in this and other sections of this website by abbreviation. With the advent of ductile iron pipe and its flexibility, this additive method of design became obsolete. A brief review of the older specifications in chronological order may help define their usefulness, as well as help in the appreciation of the improved modern standards.
Prior toat least two unofficial documents dealing with pipe design were acknowledged by AWWA. The general acceptance by the water works industry of the standardized mechanical joint necessitated a universal outside diameter for cast iron pipe.
The AWWA standards employed a system of class designations applied to specific wall thicknesses in diameters 4″ through 84″ inclusive for a range c51 hydraulic heads. Mining and Dredging Mining Dredging. A standard, manual or revision is c11 by a subcommittee assigned to that task. AWWA revised their standards in to incorporate a new method of designing cast iron pressure pipe.
The subcommittee prepares and submits the document to the Standards Committee for approval.
Ed Sears, was instrumental in these developments. 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 this new metal. In order to take advantage of modern metallurgical science, better testing methods, improved production control, materials with better physical c511, and improvements in manufacturing wwwa, the A21 Committee has a continuing program for keeping its standards revised to include the latest proven developments.
Fairchild and James P.
The work of Prof. 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.
AWWA C – Ductile-Iron Pipe, Centrifugally Cast
The following is a list of the organizations referred to in this and other sections of this website by abbreviation. 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.
The most common of these classes were A, B, C and D for, and feet hydraulic head, respectively. Fanning and included a variation in the outside diameter for the different classes of pipe. As noted in the following paragraph, ductile iron design employs flexible conduit principles since the internal pressure relieves the external load. 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.
Message Add specific model info if applicable. The formula may be stated as:. What is five times five? Although the NEWWA standards did not provide a formula for pipe thicknesses, the Brackett formula was used in determining the thicknesses recommended.
Actually, the first standard covering centrifugally cast pipe was issued by the U. The AWWA in adopted a standard covering bell and spigot pipe produced in foot laying lengths by the pit casting method. Laying conditions and properties of the iron in the pipe are also factors involved in the design.
Kirkwood, as chief engineer for the Brooklyn Water Works, developed a design for cast iron pipe which was a variant of the Barlow formula.

Fanning, Dexter Brackett, I. The design was based on a variation of the Brackett formula by J. The first of these used thicknesses for pipe determined by averaging the thicknesses used in a large number of American cities. After all approvals have been received, including a public review by both AWWA and ANSIthe standard, manual or revision is published and made available to the public.
The basic design of aww with a different outside diameter for each class was followed in modern specifications until the revisions. It embodies the basic principle for design of a cylinder for internal pressure. In the development of the design awea cast iron pipe, this formula has been modified in several ways by prominent water works engineers such as D151 Hazen, Thomas H.
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. In Julythe specification was revised to include pipe cast centrifugally in sand-lined molds, pipe cast centrifugally d151 metal molds, and pit cast pipe. Additions for casting tolerance are included in the design thickness.
