The Concrete Pipe Association of Australasia represents manufacturers of steel reinforced concrete pipe and associated products who are committed to the use of AS/NZS 4058 "Precast concrete pipe (Pressure and non-pressure)" and AS/NZS 3725 "Design for the installation of buried concrete pipe", as the benchmarks in industry.
Steel reinforced concrete pipe designed, installed and manufactured to these Standards will remain in service for over 100 years!
It is the vision of the CPAA to be the principal source of technical knowledge and education covering all aspects of pipe and its related products in Australia and New Zealand.
The Association aspires to represent excellence in design, manufacture, application, and technology of steel-reinforced concrete pipe and associated products..
Steel reinforced concrete pipe – built to last for over 100 years!.
Important news for Designers and others:
QDTMR has released a Notice of Annexure for MRTS 25 (August 2016): click here
The consequence of this is that the use of the CPAA PipeClass software is now relevant for use on QDTMR projects. Previously, the adoption by QDTMR of an alternate load case (at variance to that used in AS/NZS 3725) meant that designers were largely restricted in using this software for QDTMR projects. This change makes things easier for designers who may now use PipeClass more widely.
