Calculate the Popelar time and stress multiplication factors to shift the failure times from the elevated temperature test condition to the service condition: Each certification so furnished shall be signed by a person authorized by the manufacturer. The point shall aahsto considered as the 0. This inspection will verify that the quality control plan has been implemented and is being followed and that at least one designated quality control technician is on-site and will be present when material is being produced under this program.

The producing company must have a quality control plan approved by the specifying agency. The minimum UCLS failure time shall be prescribed based on the service conditions temperature and factored design stress and desired service life as detailed in A2 of the Annex. If pipe is made from a non-PPI certified resin or non-PPI certified blend of component resins, the pipe manufacturer should have a resin testing program in place that includes the testing of each component resin and resin blend lot for density and melt index and have the means of conducting in-house or contract lab the remaining cell class and NCLS testing as specified in this standard.

A plan for dealing with nonconforming product, including how the producer plans to initiate immediate investigation and how corrective action will be implemented to remedy the cause of the problem. If specimens are taken from ground-up pieces of pipe that have been compression-molded into a plaque, the plaques shall be made per ASTM D Procedure C.

The perforations shall be cleanly cut so as not to restrict the inflow of water. An annual update may be required. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.


Rotate the second specimen 90 degrees from the orientation of the first specimen and test. The melt-blended sample shall be tested for melt index, density, and NCLS in accordance with the number of hours per the requirements of the standard.

We want to hear from you. The producing plant s must have a designated quality control technician. Use pipe samples at least mm 12 in. Perforations shall be uniformly spaced along the length and circumference of the pipe. Fittings shall not reduce the inside diameter of the pipe being joined by more than 12 mm 0.

Conduct four tests on specimens cut from the same ring of pipe at degree intervals around the circumference. Additionally, pipe specimens shall not exhibit a decrease or downward deviation in the load-deflection curve prior to the buckling deflection limit calculated in Section 9. Ready to take your aahto offline? Its major use aashyo to collect or convey drainage water by open gravity flow, as culverts, storm drains, etc.

The manufacturer shall have current calibration records for the automated or manual weigh-blending equipment. The feeler gauge should not pass through the corrugation valley into a void at any location along the circumference of the pipe. The dry-blended sample shall be fully aashtoo by melt blending via a twin screw lab extruder or other melt homogenization technique that has been verified to provide similar levels of homogenization prior to testing for physical properties.

Corrugated Polyethylene Pipe AASHTO M —

An abbreviated procedure is shown below. Introduced indual wall N pipe, m2944 its smooth interior wall and corrugated exterior, offers exceptional hydraulics and strength. The laboratory will be inspected and approved if it meets the requirements. The slow crack growth mechanism is comprised of a crack initiation phase and a crack propagation phase.


The following information must be included in the plan: All measurements shall be made in accordance with Section 9. Unfortunately, this book can’t be printed from the OpenBook. For Type D pipe, delamination is a separation of the liner and outer wall as evidenced by a visible gap extending completely between the internal supports and liner or outer wall at any point around the circumference of the pipe. Product Information ADS Dual Wall N drainage pipe, available with multiple joining systems, provides corrugated-pipe strength and aasht interior wall hydraulics for increased flow capacity, in a lifetime package.


Jump up to the previous page or down to the next one. Lengths shall not be less than 99 percent of the stated quantity when measured in accordance with Section 9. The center of the falling tup shall strike on a corrugation crown for all impacts.

Built using application-specific high-density polyethylene, dual wall N corrugated pipe also provides superior corrosion and abrasion resistance. Other types of coupling bands or m2944 devices that are equally effective as those described, and that comply with the joint performance criteria of AASHTO LRFD Bridge Construction Specifications, Section 30, may be used when approved by the purchaser.

Looking for other ways to read this? An example calculation is shown in Appendix X2. Split couplings shall engage at least two full corrugations on each pipe section.

Below is the uncorrected machine-read text of this chapter, intended to provide our own search engines and external engines with highly rich, chapter-representative searchable text of each book. Materials, workmanship, dimensions, pipe stiffness, slow crack growth resistance, joining systems, brittleness, and form of markings are specified.

Use a flat plate specimen holder. Density of pipe compounds containing recycled materials should be conducted by the ultrasound technique in accordance with ASTM D since ultrasonic density is not affected by colorants and other inorganic compounds that may be present in these materials. Pipe connected by couplings or bands may be unperforated within mm 4 in.
