Abstract

This project advanced the knowledge and methods to predict the external corrosion of ductile iron (DI) pipe not protected by polyethylene (PE) encasement, including a investigation of non-intrusive and non-destructive methods to determine current condition and predict future performance of DI pipe. Research partners: WERF and EPA. Published in 2015.

Originally funded as WERF project INFR1SG09f
