The general acceptance by the water works industry of the standardized mechanical joint necessitated a universal outside diameter for cast iron pipe.

The following standards are related to ductile iron and gray iron piping and other products, but are generally not directly applicable to the manufacture of AMERICAN pipe and fittings. As noted in the following paragraph, ductile iron design employs flexible conduit principles since the internal pressure relieves the external load.

The subcommittee prepares and submits the document to the Standards Committee for approval. 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. Fairchild and James P. Abbreviations of Organizations Awea following is a list of the organizations referred to in this and other sections of awwq website by abbreviation.

In the late s, a formula by Dexter Brackett, distribution engineer for the City of Boston, was adopted by the New England Water Works Association as their standard.


Standards Council of Canada

Actually, the first standard covering centrifugally cast pipe was issued by the U. A standard, manual awws revision is developed by a subcommittee assigned to that task. Fanning, Dexter Brackett, I.

The work of Prof. In the development of the design of cast iron pipe, this formula has been modified in several ways by prominent water works engineers such as Allen Hazen, Thomas H.

Prior toat least two unofficial documents dealing with pipe design were acknowledged by AWWA. The most common of these classes were A, B, C and D for, and feet hydraulic head, respectively.

How many minutes are in an hour? 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.

ANSI/AWWA C/A | Standards Council of Canada – Conseil canadien des normes

The formula may be stated as: 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. Ed Sears, was instrumental in these developments. Answer the following question: AWWA revised their standards in to incorporate a new method of designing cast awqa pressure pipe.

Other applicable standards generally cover specialties or refer to ANSI standards. Trench aww 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.

Continued research on ductile zwwa pipe reflects through these updated standards the advancements in metallurgical technology and manufacturing skills. Message Add specific model info if applicable. Laying conditions and properties of the iron in the pipe are also factors involved in the design.


With the advent of ductile iron pipe and its flexibility, this awwq method of design became obsolete. It embodies the basic principle for design of a cylinder for internal pressure.

Development of ductile iron in the s initiated research into design of ductile iron pipe to qwwa advantage of the superior flexibility, strength, toughness, impact resistance and corrosion resistance of this new metal. The following is a list of the organizations referred to in this and other sections of this website by abbreviation.

Overview Characteristics Thicknesses Weights Standards. The AWWA in adopted a standard covering bell and spigot pipe produced in foot laying lengths by the pit casting method. Kirkwood, as chief engineer for the Brooklyn Water Works, developed a design for cast iron pipe which was a awws of the Barlow formula.

The basic design of pipe with a different outside diameter for each class was followed in modern specifications until the revisions.

The formula may be stated as:. The first of these used thicknesses for pipe determined by averaging the thicknesses used in a large number of American cities.
