Abstract

"In 900 A.D. the Chinese piped natural gas through bamboo tubes and used it for lighting, and about 1830 artificial gas was carried by three inch wooden pipes in a town in New England. Today there are many thousands of miles of steel pipe bringing gas from Western fields to eastern cities, and many more miles of steel and cast iron pipe for the distribution of artificial and natural gas in the majority of the towns and cities in the United States. This paper will deal with the construction of acetylene welded steel pipe lines, and some of the problems involved in this type of construction. The photographs in this article were taken by the author, or under his direction, and the information obtained from personal experience"--Introductory, page ii.
