Abstract

Develops a general evaluation matrix to help utilities identify prestressed concrete cylinder pipe (PCCP) with the highest risk of failure in their systems. Also provides an understanding of the trends of the number of failures and failure rate of PCCP in North America over the past 20 years. Published in 2008.
