The objective of this study was to develop specifications and test methods for (1) recycled high-density polyethylene intended for use in the manufacture of corrugated drainage pipe and (2) corrugated pipe manufactured from blends of virgin and recycled high-density polyethylene. In accomplishing this objective, the research examined the structural and service capabilities of corrugated drainage pipe manufactured with recycled high-density polyethylene in typical transportation applications, and evaluated the applicability of existing design and performance standards for corrugated drainage pipe manufactured with virgin high-density polyethylene to that containing recycled high-density polyethylene.
