The human brain is remarkable. When we process visual information, our mind arranges what we are seeing for understanding, rather than offering a simple reflection of what is shown. However, our ability to do this breaks down when presented with imagery that is overly complex, uses too many different colors, and provides no focal point or logical flow.
Equations and soil parameters are an effort to provide the piping system designer with conservative techniques and parameters for the design of underground restrained joint piping systems. The soil parameters presented here include the results of an extensive study of the actual frictional performance of soils on ductile iron, ductile iron encased with polyethylene, and PVC pipe.
Specific needs for data accountability can vary widely across diverse market applications — industrial, municipal, agricultural, etc. Yet the underlying goal of each application is to gain the best insights for informed decision-making at the best overall value between capital expense and operating expense. Water monitoring Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offers new ways to achieve exactly that.
Although force mains represent a relatively small percentage of the total wastewater collection infrastructure, they have a higher level of risk because of fallout from catastrophic failures. Here are some key guidelines wastewater utilities can use to stay ahead of those catastrophes by adopting proactive steps to pinpoint potential problem areas in advance.
A suburban township in the upper Midwest, in the United States, buys their drinking water from a major municipal water district. The township’s water distribution system network has four connections to the larger municipality’s water transmission main. The municipality has many wholesale customers and has implemented contracts with each customer to limit the peak flows and the time of day in which they may occur.
Xylem’s SurgeView Transient Pressure Monitoring is a noninvasive and cost-efficient way to monitor water networks for the presence of damaging pressure surges. The solution identifies which pipes are under stress and face higher risk in order to prioritize inspection and replacement, thereby prolonging the effective life of network assets.
