  • Pipe burst diagnostics using evidence theory

    This paper presents a decision support methodology aimed at assisting Water Distribution System (WDS) operators in the timely location of pipe bursts. This will enable them to react more systematically and promptly. The information gathered from various data sources to help locate where a pipe burst might have occurred is frequently conflicting and imperfect. The methodology developed in this ...

  • 5 Pieces of equipment needed for the pipe bursting process

    Sewer pipe bursting looks a little bit like magic if you compare it to the traditional methods of sewer replacement. With the use of underground construction equipment, including directional boring equipment, sewer technicians are able to pull a new pipe through the old pipe without digging a hole into the top surface of the ground. The sewer pipe bursting method is the perfect pipe replacement ...

  • GPR goes underground: Pipe Penetrating Radar

    Abstract: Pipe Penetrating Radar (PPR) is the underground in-pipe application of ground penetrating radar (GPR) either robotically or by manned entry to reveal wall thickness, delamination, voids, and other conditions that enable more precise determination of pipeline integrity and verifications for trenchless technology rehabilitation. PPR, when applied to pipe-bursting applications, can ...

  • Residential Sewer and Drain Pipe Line Repairing by Pipe Bursting Method

    One responsibility a homeowner must accomplish is the regular maintenance and repairs around the house. The scale goes up according to how pressing the problem is. Decisive action must be done for emergency situations, especially when it comes to sewer line emergencies. As soon as you notice the pipes leaking or backing up, you’ll need to immediately have it inspected and repaired. If not, ...

  • Optimal meter placement for pipe burst detection in water distribution systems

    Pipe bursts in water distribution systems (WDS) must be rapidly detected to minimize the loss of system functionality and recovery time. Pipe burst is the most common failure in WDS. It results in water loss out of the system, increased head losses, and low pressure at the customers' taps. Therefore, effective and efficient detection of pipe bursts can improve system resilience. To this end, ...

  • Transient and surge related pipe bursts, water loss and damage prevention

    Pipe bursts as a result of transients and surges within a piping network are very common problems throughout the world. Not only are the maintenance costs of these repairs extremely expensive, but when you add in possible litigation for third party damages, combined with the potentially significant value (cost) of the lost water, you can quickly realize the significance of what may appear simply ...

  • Geostatistical techniques for approximate location of pipe burst events in water distribution systems

    This paper focusses on the customisation and further enhancement of the recently developed data-driven methodology for the automated near real-time detection of pipe bursts and other (e.g. sensor faults) events at the district metered area (DMA) level. Assuming the availability of pressure/flow data from an increased number of sensors deployed in a DMA, the aim is to: (i) overcome the ...

  • Analysis of historic bursts and burst detection in water supply areas of different size

    Pipe bursts in water distribution networks lead to water losses and a risk of damaging the urban environment. We studied hydraulic data and customer contact records of 44 real bursts for a better understanding of the phenomena. We found that most bursts were reported to the water company shortly after the beginning, and the negative consequences of the bursts were limited. However, smaller ...

  • New York City Chooses Ductile Iron Pipe For First Pipe Bursting Project

    When the City of New York Department of Design and Construction (DDC) determines a pipeline needs to be installed, any private utility using the City’s right-of-way, e.g. ConEd, Cable Vision, Key Span and Verizon, is responsible for the cost of relocating and supporting, if possible, any conflicting lines prior to or during construction. This cost can be extremely high since utility corridors are ...

  • How having the Right Pipe Bursting Equipment Can Boost Trenchless Repair Service Providers

    A Trenchless Repair for sewer pipes has been trending in parts of the country. It allows for pipes to be fixed or replaced without trenches being dug into the yard or landscape. It also allows the problem to be fixed without the mess of digging up existing structures such as; porches, driveways, sidewalks, and much more. It is important for business’s who advertise the Trenchless Repair to ...

  • A comparison of trenchless pipe bursting vs. conventional open cut methods for water and wastewater transmission mains

    ABSTRACT Over the last 15 years, new advances in trenchless technologies have emerged across Europe and are finding their way into the United States. One of the fastest growing methods involves pipe bursting of existing pipe and replacement with new larger diameter pipe. The existing pipe is shattered into small pieces and pushed into the surrounding soil. A new pipe of like or larger size is ...

  • Study on relationships between climate-related covariates and pipe bursts using evolutionary-based modelling

    Researchers extensively studied external loads since they are widely recognized as significant contributors to water pipe failures. Physical phenomena that affect pipe bursts, such as pipe-environment interactions, are very complex and only partially understood. This paper analyses the possible link between pipe bursts and climate-related factors. Many water utilities observed consistent ...

  • Improving the rapidity of responses to pipe burst in water distribution systems: a comparison of statistical process control methods

    A pipe burst is a major water distribution system failure. Water escapes the network through the break increasing the total flow entering the network. These higher flows, in turn, increase the head losses in pipes and result in lower water pressures at customer taps. This study focuses on burst detection by seeking to identify anomalies in net system demand, pipe flow rates, and nodal pressure ...

  • Estimating burst probability of water pipelines with a competing hazard model

    Because pipeline systems represent more than 80% of the total asset value of water-distribution systems, their management is an important issue for water utilities. A pipeline deteriorates over time after installation and, along with the deterioration, pipe bursts can occur as various types, and the choice of a maintenance and repair strategy will depend on the burst types. It is therefore ...

  • Heuristic burst detection method using flow and pressure measurements

    Pipe bursts in a drinking water distribution system lead to water losses, interruption of supply, and damage to streets and houses due to the uncontrolled water flow. To minimize the negative consequences of pipe bursts, an early detection is necessary. This paper describes a heuristic burst detection method, which continuously compares measured and expected values of water demands and ...
