What is the meaning of Np3?

Reinforced cement concrete Non pressure of class 3 pipe. (high strength pipe) it is used where the huge amount of water.

Why are manholes round?

Reason why most of the Manholes are round:
i)  Because there are no angles for alignment
ii) The round shape makes these heavy covers easier to put back on once they’re taken off.
iii)Round Manhole won’t accidentally fall into the manhole itself.

What is a Hume pipes?
A Hume pipe is a concrete tube with reinforced bar. It was invented by the Hume brothers in Australia in 1910.
What is a Pressure Test & How it is done?
When testing the pipe line hydraulically, the line shall be kept filled completely with water for a week. The pressure shall then be increased gradually to full test pressure as indicated in and maintained at this pressure during the period of test with the permissible allowance indicated therein. For further details reference may be made to IS 458-1971.
What are the types of Joints in Rcc Pipes?
i) Bandage joint
ii) Spigot and socket joint (rigid and semiflexible)
iii) Collar joint (rigid and semiflexible)
iv) Flush joint (Internal and external)
How Laying and Jointing of Rcc Pipes is done?
The concrete pipes should be carefully loaded, transported and unloaded a avoiding impact. The use of inclined planes or chain pulley block is recommenced. Trench shall provide free working space on each side of the pipe which shall not be greater than 1/3 the Dia of the pipe but not less than 15 cm on either side.
What is Hume pipe culvert?
A hume pipe is a concrete tube with reinforced bar. It was invented by the Hume brothers in Australia in 1910. A hume pipe is formed by pouring concrete into a formwork, and axially rotating it, and allowing it to compact using centrifugal force. A hume pipe can withstand internal and external pressure well, and is primarily used for sewer pipes, agricultural waterways, and residential construction. Anti-bacterial concrete is commonly used in hume pipes.
