Copper and Aluminum Pipes

Goals

To determine the application of pipes made of aluminum and copper. To determine which industries use these pipes and for what in order to explore additional applications of "smart pipes."

Early Findings

Overview

  • This spreadsheet has been prepared and populated with relevant information. Insights into the copper and aluminum pipes will be input in the tabs labeled "COPPER" and "ALUMINIUM", respectively.
  • Copper pipes may be used to distribute water, in refrigerant lines, sanitary drainage, waste drainage, and ventilation systems.
  • Aluminum pipes are used in aerospace, medical equipment, mining, and automotive industries.

Summary of our Early Findings

  • Our initial one-hour research was able to create and populate a part of the spreadsheet. The research paths below will help in populating the rest of the spreadsheet.

Proposed next steps:

You need to be the project owner to select a next step.
Our initial research was able to create and populate the requested spreadsheet. We recommend continued research that will identify the uses of aluminum and copper pipes and populate the spreadsheet as described. Each request will focus on 2-3 uses.
Additionally, we could provide an overview of the 2-3 types of copper and 2-3 types of aluminum pipes. These types will determine the alloy properties and any more additional insights for each pipe type.
