Steel Penstocks, ASCE Manuals and Reports on Engineering Practice No. 79 covers the design, manufacture, installation, testing, startup, and maintenance of steel penstocks, including branches, wyes, associated appurtenances, and tunnel liners. The manual was prepared by a special ASCE Task Committee under the supervision of the Hydropower Committee of the ASCE Energy Division. The Task Committee's goal was to review all available penstock literature in order to bring the information together into one document. Since Steel Penstocks is intended for the engineer or designer who has very little experience with penstocks or pressure vessels, the manual provides a commentary on background as well as specific design, manufacture, installation, testing, startup, and maintenance requirements.
