Has anybody had experience with this? My client wants some HDPE pipe embedded into concrete. WHen finished, the total length will be 450 ft. There will be 6 pipes, varying in size from 1.5" to 8". There will be riser stations exposed every 100', but the pipe will transition to 316 stainless steel there.
I'm OK with embedding the pipe, but the thermal expansion has me concerned. Will restraining the HDPE damage either the pipe or the concrete?
