By Zach Moore and Maddi BomkampIn the smash hit 1987 film, The Princess Bride, Princess Buttercup violently pushes her beloved Westley down an endlessly sloped hillside. We know what you’re thinking: “Could a corrugated metal pipe possibly be placed underneath such a sloped hill? Inconceivable!” This question has plagued men and women alike since
A-2000™ PVC has been on the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) Optional Material for 100-year design life since 2003 and has been used for years in Florida and across the country as a direct equivalent to reinforced concrete pipe (RCP) in most storm sewer applications. A-2000™ PVC has become a preferred product over RCP for its longer
When I think about field monitoring, I often think about baseball. More specifically, I think about the knuckleball pitch. Since the knuckleball pitch has little to no spin, the ball moves in a completely unpredictable fashion. Unlike a fastball or a curveball, there are no pitching mechanics to indicate where the ball will likely wind up after
Corrugated metal pipe (CMP) is the “go-to” material for most stormwater detention and infiltration projects. A wide range of gages, corrugations, and diameters provides engineers flexibility in design not available with other materials. In addition, the industry has developed several pipe coatings and materials to accommodate site-specific
