    Historical Reviews—an overview of the PVC piping industry and polyethylene corrugated pipe industry in North America; development of ASTM’s Standard Specification D3350 Polyethylene Plastics Pipe and Fittings Materials and its influence on polyethylene piping compounds, and much more.

    Design—service life analysis for corrugated high density polyethylene piping for drainage applications; designing storm water chambers to meet AASHTO specifications; design and performance of plastic drainage pipes, and more.

    Testing and Failure Analysis—stress cracking test method for corrugated high density polyethylene piping; qualification test method for high density polyethylene butt fusion joining; tensile testing of restrained joint PVC pipes; and failure analysis of plastic pipe and other hydraulic structures.

    New Materials and Applications—discussions on Polyamide 11and Polyamide 12; and use of plastic tubing to replace cast iron piping in steam heating applications.

    Installation—plastic pipes for trenchless applications; trenchless case history; calibration case study of installation loads on fusible PVC piping in directional drilling; and axial response of HDPE pipes in directional drilling installations.
