When there is a need for a pipe, and it is in a salt water application, there is really only one perfect solution…….CORLIX!!!Contech’s CORLIX® pipe, also known in the industry as Corrugated Aluminum Pipe (CAP), has an endless number of characteristics that makes it the best choice when dealing with salt water or brackish conditions.  First and

First thing’s first, let’s talk about some basic hydraulics. Most shorter length culverts are inlet controlled and just about all storm sewers are outlet controlled. So for storm sewers, the flow is limited by the outlet conditions of the pipe and the roughness inside the pipe matters. The primary method to determine the flow rate (Q) of a storm

There are so many things that have a basic togetherness, when you name one the other pops into your mind. For example, cookies and milk, peanut butter and jelly (or banana, yum!), Tom and Jerry; you get the idea. In civil engineering, this is true too: slopes and erosion control, concrete and rebar, stormwater and storm sewer, storm sewer and

The design, manufacture and installation of Concrete, Corrugated Steel, Plastic and Steel Reinforced Polyethylene pipe happens every day for storm sewers and culverts. While most design engineers spent many hours in college learning about hydrology and hydraulics, how many spent time studying the buoyancy of pipe materials in the field? While most

Many times, with corrugated metal pipe, there are sites that will require the pipe to curve around a corner or angle around a building. It is simple to provide a 90 degree or 45 degree turn, but what do you do when the turn isn’t so easy and it needs to be refined to a more precise curve? These curves usually go around cul-de-sacs, around
