This article deals with the casting of concrete and reinforced concrete pipes by vibro-vacuum technique. The existing techniques are investigated, the shortcomings are revealed and the solutions to major issues with the improved techniques were offered. Improvement of a technological process of concrete and reinforced concrete pipes production is an important and current task. Development of such technologies should ensure the required supporting capacity reducing the cost of pipeline construction thereof. In this article the existing ways of molding concrete and reinforced concrete pipes have been evaluated. Their engineering deficiencies in terms of labour-intensity and obtaining the products with increased physical and mechanical characteristics have been identified. The offered solution addressing the problems has been identified, namely, the casting of concrete pipes by vibro-vacuum technique. Pilot studies have confirmed that this method makes it possible to achieve the sufficiently high physico-mechanical characteristics of the products. Tensile strength of vibro-vacuum pipes is 40% higher than that of pipes obtained by layer-by-layer axial compaction.
