Pipe Week at TRI EnvironmentalPipe Week returns with two 1.5-day plastic pipe training courses. The events will be held at TRI Environmental’s Austin, Texas campus. Both corrugated (October 6 – 7) and solid wall plastic pipe (October 8 – 9) will be addressed. Major topics include pipe and conduit, applications, basic polymer chemistry, resins, polymeric properties, testing, specification, long-term performance, long-term hydrostatic strength, and much more.
Instructors for the event include Mario Paredes, P.E. and Rick Thomas, P.E. (TRI Environmental), Dr. Tom Walsh (Walsh Consulting), and Sarah Patterson and Dan Currence (Plastics Pipe Institute [PPI]).
(NOTE: Registration Extended to October 2!)
The depth of experience–private company and public agency work–and range of technical information to be delivered by these instructors make the Pipe Week courses must attends. They emphasize how plastic pipe performance is related to its raw material and additive formulations and how proper laboratory characterization and interpretation of test results is crucial to successful product qualification and use.
The 1.5-day courses are dedicated to providing details on how corrugated and solid wall pipes are manufactured, specified, installed, inspected, and ultimately approved. This includes the numerous polymeric variations with pipes that are utilized in infrastructure and industry.
The courses provide a strong opportunity for professional growth and business development for all sectors of plastic pipe-related engineering.
