Continuous Fibre Reinforced Thermoplastic Pipes for Use in the Transport and Distribution


New Products & Site Techniques # 1998 Gothenburg

This paper discusses the fabrication and properties of continuous fibre reinforced thermoplastic pipe systems. Such products can be manufactured by various winding processes involving reinforcing fibres or prepreg tape and have the potential to form the basis of a new range of high added value pipe products.

This paper considers the collapse of liners confined within rigid pipes and recommends design equations top avoid this effect. Two and three-dimensional aspects of the problem are examined. The onset of unstable collapse is well-described by the critical pressure predicted from analytical models and is essentially an...
