Other applicable standards generally cover specialties or refer to ANSI standards. In order to take advantage of modern metallurgical science, better testing methods, improved production control, materials with better physical properties, and improvements in awea methods, the A21 Committee has a continuing program for keeping its standards revised to include the latest proven developments.
The Committee is responsible for the development of standards and manuals for ductile iron pressure pipe for water and other liquids and for fittings used with such pipe.
A standard, manual or revision is developed by a subcommittee assigned to that task.
The subcommittee prepares and submits the document to the Standards Committee for approval. After all approvals have been received, including a public review by both AWWA and ANSIthe standard, manual or revision is published and made available to the public. The following is a list of the organizations referred to in this and other sections of this website by abbreviation.
A brief review of the older specifications in chronological order may help define their usefulness, as well as help in the appreciation of the improved modern standards. It embodies the basic principle for design of a cylinder for internal pressure.
The formula may be stated as:. In the development of the design of cast iron pipe, this formula has been modified in several ways by prominent water c1151 engineers such as Allen Hazen, Thomas H. Fanning, Dexter Brackett, I. Fairchild and James P. Kirkwood, as chief engineer for the Brooklyn Water Works, developed a design for cast iron pipe which was a variant of the Barlow formula.
In the late s, a formula by Dexter Brackett, distribution engineer for the City 1c51 Boston, was adopted by the New England Water Works Association as their standard.
Although the NEWWA standards did not provide a formula for pipe thicknesses, the Brackett formula was used in determining the thicknesses recommended.
The AWWA c51 adopted a standard covering bell and spigot pipe produced in foot laying lengths by the pit casting method. Prior toat least two unofficial documents dealing with pipe design were acknowledged by AWWA.
The first of these used thicknesses for pipe determined by averaging the thicknesses used in a large number of American cities. The AWWA standards employed a system of class designations applied to specific wall thicknesses in diameters 4″ through 84″ inclusive for a range of hydraulic heads. The most common of these classes were A, B, C and D for, and feet hydraulic head, respectively. The design was based on a variation of the Brackett formula by J. Fanning and included a variation in awea outside diameter for the different classes of pipe.
The basic design of pipe with a different outside diameter for each class was followed in modern specifications until the revisions.
The general acceptance by the water works industry of the standardized mechanical joint necessitated a universal outside diameter for cast iron pipe. AWWA revised their standards in to incorporate a new method of cc151 cast iron pressure pipe.
Trench load consists of the earth load on the pipe plus any transient load resulting from traffic over the trench; internal pressure consists of the design working pressure plus an additional allowance for surge pressure. Laying conditions and properties of the iron in the pipe are also factors involved in the design.
Additions for casting tolerance are included in the design thickness. With the advent of ductile iron pipe and its flexibility, this additive method of design became obsolete.
As noted in the following paragraph, ductile iron design employs flexible conduit principles since the internal pressure relieves the external load. Actually, the first standard covering centrifugally cast pipe was issued by the U. In Julythe c511 was revised to include pipe cast centrifugally in sand-lined molds, pipe cast centrifugally in metal molds, and pit cast pipe. Development of ductile iron in the s initiated research into design of ductile iron pipe to take advantage of the superior flexibility, strength, toughness, impact resistance and corrosion resistance of this new metal.
The work of Prof. Spangler and others at Aqwa State University on flexible conduit is the basis for principles that have been applied extensively by the designers of flexible underground pipe.
Ed Sears, was instrumental in these developments. Continued research on ductile iron pipe reflects through these updated standards the advancements in metallurgical technology and manufacturing skills. The following standards are related to ductile iron and gray iron piping and other awa, but are generally not directly applicable to the manufacture of AMERICAN pipe and fittings.
