AbstractCurrently, municipal engineers often choose the type of sewer pipe based on initial cost alone, but this publication can help users consider the life-cycle cost, by providing valuable information on the performance and durability of four types of gravity sewer pipes. Pipe products and their materials and design are reviewed, and bedding and backfill types and installation procedures are examined. Resistance of the various pipes to fire, abrasion, and chemical and biological attack are discussed. The information is tied together with a summary that highlights the best type of pipe to use for each situation.
