Abstract: Steel products have an unrivalled track record and for many years have provided the perfect solution for a very wide variety of structural and civil engineering problems.

The object of this paper is to consider the uses and merits of steel pipes as used in the water engineering industries. The use of steel is on the increase and the potential is enormous. ,p> Steel is shown to offer flexibility, buildability and excellent mechanical properties in relation to other pipe materials. It is also demonstrated that steel corrodes at a similar rate to ductile iron and that steel pipes offer significant advantages in terms of corrosion resistant systems.

Current research and development in relation to the use of steel pipes in the water industries are also discussed.
