The Concrete Pipe Association of Australasia (CPAA) 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.
The Association aspires to represent excellence in design, manufacture, application, and technology of steel-reinforced concrete pipe and associated products..

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.
