Design of Prestressed Concrete Cylinder Pipe
|Publication Date:||19 January 2014|
This standard defines the methods to be used in the structural design of buried prestressed concrete cylinder pipe (PCCP) under internal pressure. These methods are provided for the design of pipe subjected to the effects of working, transient, and field-test load and internal pressure combinations.
The design procedures of this standard are applicable to lined-cylinder pipe (LCP) having inside diameters of 16 in. through 60 in. (410 mm through 1,520 mm) and to embedded-cylinder pipe (ECP) having inside diameters of 24 in. (610 mm) and larger.
The design for longitudinal hydrostatic thrust restraint of prestressed concrete cylinder pipe is not addressed in this standard. See AWWA Manual M9, Concrete Pressure Pipe, for information on this topic.
