Learn the new International Advances in Asset Management, Pipeline Materials, Design, Installation, Rehabilitation, and Trenchless Construction Methods.
Learn the most common causes of serious pipeline failures, over 300,000 waterline breaks, in excess of 40,000 major sewage spills causing more than 3 million Americans become seriously ill and loss of life this year alone.
Learn about a national crisis that may be looming due to errors and omissions and may have little to do with an aging infrastructure.
Learn all about defective engineering specifications that cost hundreds of millions of dollars, delays, liquidated damages and loss of reputation every year.
Learn how to design, install and share rights of way and existing infrastructure among multiple functions, pipes and cables.
How cost efficient are your pipe repair decisions? Find out how to obtain substantial savings by learning how to repair/ rehabilitate pipe systems, how to write quality specifications protecting yourselves without being influenced by the various pipe interest groups.
Learn what the 30 day rule is for pipe projects and how to prepare yourself better to avoid claims and disputes.
Get the most up-to-date independent engineering guidance on steel, plastic, concrete, ductile iron and clay pipe materials and how to complete a cost effective design for a buried pipe system.
Examine recent case histories of pipe failures and the need for better understanding of pipe-soil system design and installation procedures to avoid failures and claims.
Find out about the applicability, usefulness and limitations of standards, codes, and computer aided methods.
Learn how design, installation and pipe performance impact each other from the same speaker with hands-on knowledge; you may bring specific problems to the seminar for discussion of possible solutions.
Cut overall design, installation and operation costs by learning to use pipe-soil interaction principles on buried pipe projects.
Learn how and why projects could fail when you use erroneŽous E' values from the AWWA, ASTM, and ASCE standards and the Bureau of Reclamation.
Learn what correct Modulus of Soil Reaction, E' values are; how to obtain and use these properly in buried pipe design based on testing and sound principles of soil-pipe interaction; also vary from open-cut to trenchless construction.
Find out the need for uncompacted pipe bedding, soil-cement slurry for pipe embedment and backfill, when to use which bedding.
Develop pipe-soil system specifications for pipe, bedding, embedment and backfill, installation, and inspection for water, sewer, drainage, gas, process applications.
Learn about longitudinal effects and pressure pipe design requirements.
Do hands-on design calculations in group workshop sessions.
