    Abstract

    From 1966 to 2009, the corrugated polyethylene pipe industry has grown from its first introduction to greater than a $2.5 × 109 industry in North America and from 4 in. (100 mm) only to a product diameter range of 2 in. (50 mm) through 60 in. (1500 mm). Markets have changed and grown as well, from predominantly agricultural drainage applications to housing, commercial development, transportation, mining, industry, forestry, storm sewer, sanitary sewer, turf drainage, and stormwater treatment. Increases in diameters and expansion of markets have led to corresponding changes in manufacturing processes and development of appropriate standards and specifications.
