Design Methods for CIPP Liners in Gravity and Pressure Pipes – an Overview

On the 8th of February 2022 at 2pm, UKSTT’s Technical & Education subcommittee Chair, Tom Sangster will be delivering a presentation for ISTT.

Design Methods for CIPP Liners in Gravity and Pressure Pipes – an Overview

The design of CIPP liners in both gravity and pressure pipes has evolved significantly since the first somewhat empirical designs. There are now well-established methods for gravity pipe liners in the USA, the UK, Germany and France, to name but a few. These are evolving as more research and empirical evidence shows that the modified Glock method is more accurate than the Timoshenko method formerly used. France and Germany have already made the transition and the UK is doing so at present. The USA is expected to follow as well. In pressure pipes the situation is less clear and significant challenges remain in understanding the interactions between the liner and the host pipe. This webinar will review the design approaches for both gravity and pressure liners and will identify the key areas where more research and information is required, especially in the design of pressure pipe liners.

The ISTT webinar series is free to attend and open to UKSTT members and all affiliated societies.
