About the book
Concrete pipe is in use for over 100 years and has not been replaced, by any other material, especially for drainage pipes. The book touches all aspects of concrete pipes, right from inception, design manufacture, laying, maintenance etc. Spinning technology is fully described both from practical and theoretical point of view, which is very useful to all concrete pipe manufacturers. Latest approach to hydraulics, right from determination of surface roughness to selection of appropriate value for ‘C’ in Hazen & Williams Formula, Case study of 50 years old pipe to estimate the durability, or the life of concrete pipe.
