Unearth the Secrets of Designing and Building High-Quality Buried Piping Systems
This brand-new edition of Buried Pipe Design helps you analyze the performance of a wide range of pipes, so you can determine the proper pipe and installation system for the job. Covering almost every type of rigid and flexible pipe, this unique reference identifies and describes factors involved in working with sewer and drain lines, water and gas mains, subway tunnels, culverts, oil and coals slurry lines, and telephone and electrical conduits. It provides clear examples for designing new municipal drinking and wastewater systems or rehabilitating existing ones that will last for many years on end. Comprehensive in scope and meticulously detailed in content, this is the pipe design book you'll want for a reference.
This NEW edition includes:
Important data on the newest pipe styles, including profile-wall polyethylene
Updated references to ASTM, AWWA, and ASHTTO, standards
Numerous examples of specific types of pipe system designs
Safety precautions included in installation specifications
Greater elaboration on trenchless technology methods
New information on the cyclic life of PVC pressure pipe
Buried Pipe Design covers the ins and outs of:
Gravity Flow Pipe Design
Pressure Pipe Design
Rigid Pipe Products
Flexible Steel Pipe
Flexible Ductile Iron Pipe
Flexible Plastic Pipe
