Three Edged Bearing Strengths Non-RCP & Clay Pipe

ACPA-Website-Icon-DD8-Three-Edge-Bearing-Strengths-Nonreinforced-Concrete-Pipe-And-Clay-Pipe-1Design Data 8:  Three Edge Bearing Strengths Nonreinforced Concrete Pipe and Clay Pipe

Pipe strength classifications established by manufacturing and material standards for nonreinforced concrete pipe and clay pipe are based on three-edge bearing test strengths expressed in pounds per linear foot. These test strengths are directly related to the load carrying capacity of the buried pipe.
