Managing the Risks Presented by Pipeburst, Redundant and Live Asbestos Cement Pipe Water Distribution Mains: Condition Assessment Methodology for Asbestos Cement Pipes
The objective of this study was to develop a methodology for predicting the condition of AC water pipes and identify how GIS could be used to report this information.
Each of the factors affecting condition of pipes are identified and a model developed to predict degradation. The model is correlated against field samples tested at WRc using phenolphthalein tests and crush tests.
The study concluded that the strength of an AC pipe can be correlated to wall thickness. Maximum observed rates of internal and external degradation are calculated.
