This manuscript concerns the decrease of the structural strength and possible collapse of force (pressure) mains due to bedload erosion (abrasion), caused by low concentrations of hard solid particles transported with the sanitary sew- age. Such a phenomenon may probably occur in combined sanitary systems (CSS), but it has also been observed in force mains delivering domestic sewage, due to occasional penetration of hard solid particles into the sanitary sewerage system. Force mains are usually… CONTINUE READING
