Citation Xianming Chen. Common incidents and prevention of urban water supply pipeline accidents. TNS (2024) Vol. 37: 198-205. DOI: 10.54254/2753-8818/37/20240208.


With rapid urbanization, urban water supply pipeline accidents have become increasingly prevalent. Understanding their common occurrences and prevention strategies is crucial for ensuring water safety. This study aims to explore the underlying causes of such incidents, ranging from ageing infrastructure to design flaws and construction issues. By analyzing existing preventive measures and international best practices, this research seeks to contribute to the development of effective strategies for mitigating urban water supply pipeline accidents. This thesis focuses on urban water supply pipeline accidents, addressing both common incidents and preventive measures. It begins by highlighting the unique challenges of fires in high-rise buildings, including their rapid spread and the difficulties in evacuating occupants. The paper then emphasizes the importance of innovative fire-resistant materials, classifying them into various types such as phenolic, sprayed, calcium silicate, and lightweight composite materials. Each type is explored in detail, discussing their properties and potential applications. Finally, the paper outlines the practical use of these materials in fire engineering, emphasizing their role in enhancing the safety and resilience of urban infrastructure. Overall, this thesis contributes valuable insights to understanding and mitigating the risks associated with urban water supply pipeline accidents, promoting disaster prevention and management efforts.
