ASTM WK72126

    New Test Method for Hydraulic Friction Factor Testing of Thermoplastic Pipe used in Gravity Flow Applications.

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: F17.40 | Committee F17 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    Development of a new test method to determine the friction factor of plastic pipe intended for gravity flow applications.


    HDPE, PP, PVC, plastic pipe, Mannings, friction factor


    There is currently no accepted standard test method for friction factor testing, this new test method will be used by producers as a method to test pipe, the results will be used by designers and general users.

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
