The article describes recent advances in metals, concrete, clay, plastics and composites, all used for pipelines. Plastics and composites are the most obvious newcomers, as well as coatings, and wrappings for metal pipe, and higher grade steels. Silica fume and other admixtures for concrete increase pipe strengths and corrosion resistance. Resins, advanced extrusion and gluing processes are also noted. Rigid pipe, semirigid pipe, and flexible pipe are discussed. Materials for potable water, power transmission, storm drainage, gas, irrigation, and oil pipelines are noted.
