GRP pipe malfunctions

Here are some photos of the bursted GRP pipe which was filled with about 2m overburden soil.

The penstock data are:
Head =115m
Discharge =3.2 m3/s
Length =2400m
The main reason for the burst was the movement of pipe alignment due to landslide.

The hole in ground made by the brusted pipe.
