Construction & Drainage # 1972 Southampton
Paper 9 presented at the Symposium in 1970' was an attempt to provide simplified design data for uPVC sewer pipes as had been previously done for rigid (esentially brittle) pipes by the Building Research Station2> 3. The calculations were made in Imperial units and the charts prepared in respect< of inch series pipes. With the widening adoption of metric SI units, and the United Kingdom's commitment to enter the EEC, new metric charts have now been prepared. At the same time, the opportunity has been taken to review the design factors in the light of two years' further experience and of a considerable amount of documented evidence on the behaviour of uPVC sewer pipes in various site conditions.
