Impact of Hydrocarbons on PE/PVC Pipes and Pipe Gaskets
Ms. Maureen Hodgins
Iowa State University
Determines the physicochemical, environmental, and pipe-specification parameters that influence the permeation of hydrocarbons through polyethylene and polyvinyl chloride pipes and pipe gasket materials under typically encountered field conditions. Develops laboratory tests to predict permeation of pipes and gaskets by hydrocarbons. Published in 2007.
