    This issue is not addressed in Xylem Domestic Pump and Hoffman Pump product manuals, factory recommendations or Little Red School House steam system application and sizing guides. Some installations require insulation for safety. Otherwise, it’s a matter of choice based on system design and your understanding of the strengths, limitations and use of products in the system. ...

  • Case study - One-pass-trencher used to repair Tyler Dam

    Greg DeWind takes pride in his one-pass trenching machine. With a smile on his face, he watches Wednesday as it is used to dig a trench at the Lake Tyler Dam. The 225,000-pound, 3,000-horsepower machine mixes soil, cement and bentonite clay as it cuts a trench that is 2 1/2-foot wide and about 70 feet deep, according to Steve Richards, with ETTL Engineers and Consultants. It burns about 100 ...

  • The effect of pipe collectors in reducing the drainage coefficient rate

    A high groundwater table and soil salinity, especially in arid regions, often cause serious problems for agriculture. In irrigated areas the subsurface drainage can be an effective technique to lower the depth of the groundwater table and reduce soil salinity. In drainage systems, lateral pipes are designed to collect the free water from soil and convey it into collectors. In other words, ...

  • Simplifying impact of urban development on sewer systems

    Linking urban development and urban drainage models is a more and more popular approach when impacts of pavement of urban areas on sewer system performance are evaluated. As such an approach is a difficult task, this is not a feasible procedure for everyday engineering practice. We propose an alternative method, based on a developed simple near-quadratic relationship, which directly translates ...

  • Analytical solution for the flow velocity and water surface angle in drainage and sewer networks: case of pipes arranged in series

    Drainage and sewer network runs mostly under free surface flow condition. Among the characteristics which are important for practitioners are the flow velocity and water surface angle. The computation of these parameters in partially full pipes using Manning equation is implicit and requires iterative and laborious calculation methods. The goal of this paper is to provide a new method, where the ...
