Synopsis

GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic) pipes have been used as an alternative to RC (reinforced concrete) and VC (vitrified clay) pipes in the conveyance of water and sewage for a long time already in Europe and Middle East due to its better corrosion resistance and lighter weight. However, its usage in Malaysia is not so wide spread as many engineers are not very familiar with this type of pipes. This seminar will introduce the GRP pipe technology covering its production process, quality control, stiffness classes and load capacities. It will also address the design criteria for flow coefficients, hydraulic and mechanical properties with respect to other type of pipe materials and design of the pipeline in a few case studies involving installation of buried pipe, above ground and in pipe jacking.
