    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies centrifugally cast (spun) iron pressure pipes for water, gas and sewage manufactured in either metal or sand moulds. Gives requirements common to both methods of moulding and those peculiar to metal moulds and to sand moulds. Includes typical for tensile ring test, dimensions of tensile bar test pieces, and conversion factors.
