2006 Washington DC : Development of a Whole Life Costing Model for Large Diameter Water Mains
Author(s) : Shepherd, Headford, Jordan, Reeves, Walton
In Europe polyethylene (PE) has been chosen almost exclusively for gas mains for many
years because of economic, technical and safety reasons but in the water industry a number of
different materials are still used for pressure water mains. Indeed at sizes above 355mm (14
inch) most new large diameter water mains are...
2006 Washington DC : Promoting Investment and Quality in the Local Infrastructure in Italy
Author(s) : Catanzano, Bosetti, Walton, Serrao
The development of gas, water and sewerage networks greatly enhanced city life in the late
19th and early 20th Century providing much needed street lighting and dramatically reducing
water borne disease. Understandably in many European cities these underground piping
systems are now showing serious signs of their...
2001 Munich : The Need for Pipeline Rehabilitation
Author(s) : Elzink
The type of problems encountered in existing pipelines are presented in this paper, together
with the available methods to rehabilitate them. In the majority of the cases plastics are
nowadays applied, either to replace the existing ones, or to renovate them by lining. The
latter is increasingly gaining...

1992 Eindhoven : The Actual Performance of Plastics Pipes in Europe over 25 Years
Author(s) : Elzink, Molin
Today, in some parts of Europe plastics pipes
and fittings are considered as mature products
which have obtained an established position in
underground applications. However, in others due
to their flexible nature, their use is still

1988 Bath : Electrofusion - A new System
Author(s) : Walton, van Houten
Electrofusion fittings have now been widely
accepted within the European Gas Industry for
jointing polyethylene pipe. with a high
potential demand for electrofusion couplers,
Wavin applied its plastics process knowledge
to develop an efficient and cost effective
co-extrusion manufacturing technique. In this
1979 Brigthon : Experience of Long-Term Behaviour of uPVC Gravity Sewers
Author(s) : Gehrels, Elzink
The main concern over the behaviour of buried plastics pipes is the occurrence of deflection. Theories are useless if not checked by field measurements to remove uncertainties, Over the last 15 years. 25 km of pipeline in 600 different sections have been measured in 5 West-European countries in quite different circum-...
