Geopipes are a
common preference of a majority of engineers when it comes to transportation,
geotechnical, and environmental engineering. It plays a crucial role in the
distribution of gas and water, sewer and wastewater, gas and oil production,
mining and industrial uses, irrigation and duct systems, and power and
communication. Simply put, Geopipes are perforated PVC pipes wrapped with
geotextile and used with the foundation, rock, soil, earth or any other
material related to the subsurface and it is one of the most sought-after
products in almost any man-made system, structure or project.
extremely easy to handle and can be installed in a much shorter span of times.
It has external load strength, which is a critical factor whenever considering
any civil project. Other vital factors in Geopipes include its flexibility,
efficiency in drainage, high discharge capacity and its corrosion resistant
application in sub-soil drainage for roads, drainage in mining or drainage in
commercial or residential constructions. Geopipes have revolutionized drainage
systems with its near-perfect attributes. It also has high utility in
agricultural lands, building foundations, construction sites, and sports &
recreational fields. It is highly effective in preventing water logging caused
by soil seepage. These products apart from being extremely reliable also have a
role to play in the sustainable development of the community, due to its
environmental benefits. It is thus, no surprise that the geosynthetics
community as a whole, will be actively involved in specifying, designing, and
testing a massive volume of PVC Geopipes.
