Topic: Design and Installation Details for Storm Drain Pipe (1.0 PDH)

Presenters: Alena Mikhaylova and Alex Aldridge of Rinker Materials


Do you know what is involved in the design of storm pipe for your projects? Would Class III pipe be sufficient, or do you need a higher strength pipe? Is soil design required when you specify flexible pipe? What are the main differences in design of rigid and flexible pipes? This interactive webinar will provide you answers to questions that design engineers typically have. You will learn the basics of a proper pipe installation, differences between flexible and rigid pipes on plans and in the ground. We will discuss notes and details that should be added on plans to protect yourself from having issues in the field during construction.
