River modeling
Autodesk’s Project River Analysis Extension for AutoCAD Civil 3D 2012 and AutoCAD Map 3D 2012 (available for download and trial on Autodesk Labs) is a river modeling software package that supports and automates HEC-RAS analysis. This technology preview of River Analysis allows infrastructure planners, engineers, and designers to compute water surface profiles for modeling rivers, bridges, culverts, spillways, levees, floodplain and floodway delineations, stream diversions, channel improvements, and split flows.

Recycled pipe
Prinsco Inc. introduced ECOFLO 100, a corrugated, dual-wall HDPE pipe manufactured with a minimum of 40 percent recycled HDPE that offers a 100-year service life, according to the company. The pipe recently earned this rating after undergoing testing at an independent lab using Florida Department of Transportation’s service life protocol. Service life testing evaluates pipe failure potential at two critical stages: slow crack growth (Stage II) and chemical degradation (Stage III).
