About this event

Ovoid brick sewer pipes have historically been used in the Victorian era for combined sewer and drainage networks. A recent development has been the availability of ovoid shaped glass reinforced pipe (GRP), originally developed for relining of the original brick pipes.

This talk will demonstrate how the hydraulic characteristics of the ovoid pipe are essential in allowing pipes to be laid at flatter grades than the equivalent circular pipe whilst maintain self-cleaning velocity criteria leading to a lowering earthworks levels and reducing imported fill volumes.
