GMA/IGS North America Webinar: An Introduction to Geopipe

March 26, 2019 12:00 am

1pm EST

In Collaboration with IGS North America

Presented by Michael Pluimer, Ph.D., P.E.

Free to Students and Industry Professionals.

Dr. Pluimer will open a series on applications, specifications, and test methods associated with geopipe. These polymeric pipe materials, commonly offered in corrugated and smooth varieties and a wide range of diameters and thicknesses, are essential to the success of modern infrastructures: water, wastewater, sewer, landfills, mining, residential and commercial development, utilities, etc. The session will address a wide range of geopipe, such as dual-wall pipe, polyethylene corrugated pipe, and numerous other materials. Raw material properties and resulting pipe properties, long-term durability, common specification requirements, and much more will be presented. Importantly, essential engineering parameters such as stress cracking, oxidation resistance, UV degradation, and creep will be discussed. IGS North America’s “Introduction to Geopipe” webinar is ideal for environmental engineers, infrastructure-owning agencies, design engineers, municipal engineers, regulators, general contractors, and other stakeholders.

All members of IGS-NA and/or GMA will receive (after the completion of the webinar) a PDF of the presentation and a link to view the webinar. To learn more about becoming a member of IGS-NA click here. To learn more about becoming a member of GMA click here.
