Eight papers cover the tremendous advancements made in the concrete pipe industry over the last hundred years providing a unique combination of the new and emerging technologies for designing and installing durable concrete pipe for sewers and culverts.
From high speed, automated manufacturing to advances in design procedures for internal and external performance, Concrete Pipe for the New Millennium will help engineers understand current performance improvements for concrete pipe and contribute to those in the future.
This valuable publication addresses three main areas:
design and installation
innovative case studies.
This includes a presentation of design application methods using the newly developed Standard Installation Direct Design (SIDD) methods as applied to low-head pressure pipe along with the results of installation testing and performance to verify the SIDD performance assumptions. SIDD is a new methodology, which has been adopted by AASHTO. In addition, there is a review of the impact of proposed load resistance factor design (LRFD) methods, a valuable tool for anyone using the LRFD code adopted by AASHTO for all new designs.
Audience: Civil and structural engineers in private and public sectors will benefit from this publication, as well as producers and contractors involved with concrete pipe for sewers and culverts.
