2014 Chicago : Plough-in of Large Diameter Polyethylene Pipes
Author(s) : Alan Whittle, Jim Campbell
The coal seam gas industry in Australia is currently undergoing a major expansion with over 50,000 km or 30,000 mile of PE100 pipes to be installed in diameters ranging from DN110 to DN710. The pipes are being used to carry produced water, gas and treated water. The considerable quantity of pipe to be installed in...
2012 Barcelona : Performance and sustainability advantages of PVC sewer pipes in australia
Author(s) : Alan Whittle, Nigel Jones and Mark Heathcote
PVC has been used successfully for sewer and sanitary drainage pipes in Australia
for over 40 years. It is the predominant material for these applications. The reason
for this success is the superior, all round performance of PVC piping systems
compared to the various alternatives. Equally important has been the...
2004 Milan : Predicting the Residual Life of PVC Sewer Pipes
Author(s) : Whittle, Tennakoon
Ipswich Water commenced reviewing the service lives of different pipe materials in its
gravity sewer system. Unlike other pipe materials, PVC sewers did not have failure histories,
or deterioration revealed in CCTV inspections, even after 25 years of service. Therefore
establishing a realistic predicted life was not...
2004 Milan : Resistance of PVC-U and PVC-M to Cyclic Fatigue
Author(s) : Whittle, Teo
PVC-U and PVC-M pipes may be used in applications where they are subjected to cyclic
pressures generated by the operation of pumps and valves. It is therefore important that the
pipe material’s response to cyclic loading is quantified and that pipelines are designed and
operated within the material’s established...
1998 Gothenburg : Elastomeric Joint Comparison of PVC, VC and FCR Pipes
Author(s) : Lu, Burn, Whittle
For rubber ring joints to resist plant root penetration, it has been reported and promulgated into
Australian Standards that a sufficiently high contact pressure between the rubber and the pipe
must be maintained. The evaluation of the appropriate interfacial pressure to be used has been
under discussion for some time...
