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:

  • External Loads
  • Gravity Flow Pipe Design
  • Pressure Pipe Design
  • Rigid Pipe Products
  • Flexible Steel Pipe
  • Flexible Ductile Iron Pipe
  • Flexible Plastic Pipe
  • Pipe Installation
  • Trenchless Technology

Book News Annotation:

Moser and Folkman (both: mechanical and aerospace engineering, Utah State U.) first released their reference for engineers and other professionals in 1990, and updated it in 2001. Here they retain most of the material from the second edition, with more corrections than additions. They are concerned with designing the pipes themselves that will be used in various systems underneath mostly cities, and to some extent with methods for installing them. Almost every type of rigid and flexible pipe is covered, as well as topics such as external loads (including longitudinal loading, seismic loads, and aircraft loads), design of gravity flow and pressure pipes, pipe-soil interactions, testing and modeling, and trenchless technology, Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
