About the book

PRESTRESSED CONCRETE PIPES AND PIPELINES touches all the aspects of Prestressed Concrete Pipe, right from its inception, design, manufacture, laying, maintenance etc. The specialty is the practical approach to every point, besides technical background. A design Engineer has not to refer to any other book than this, for water supply pipeline design. Spinning process is fully described both from practical and theoretical point of view, which is very useful to all Concrete Pipe Manufacturers. Unique feature is the experimental evaluation of the design of the pipe, based on the bursting pipe results. Latest approach to hydraulics, right from determination of surface roughness upto selection of appropriate value for “C” on Hazen and Williams formula. Case study of controlling surge pressure in 1400 mm dia, rising main is given, wherein a simple and economical device of “one way surge tank” is used. Calculations for it are included. Detailed worked out examples are given whenever needed. The book will therefore to be an asset to practicing, operation and maintenance Engineers.
