  • Designing With Geosynthetic Clay Liners

    In construction, preventing the penetration of liquids and gases is essential to maintaining the integrity of a structure. Often, containment is just as important, especially when dealing with chemical contaminants or other waste. When looking to stop the spread of contaminated liquids and gases, there are few tools as effective as geosynthetic clay liners (GCL). Read on to learn how to design ...

  • Development and Deployment of a Real-Time Remote Continuous Monitoring System for Manholes

    A new system for the detection of septic sewer overflows (SSOs) and unauthorized intrusions of manholes has been developed jointly with public water agencies in San Diego County, California. The goal of the project is to provide detection of SSOs early enough to deploy personnel to provide preventative action. The system has been in operation since May of 2005 and has detected and, with field ...

  • Quantitative pipe condition assessment with Pipe Penetrating Radar

    Abstract Pipe Penetrating Radar (PPR) is the underground in-pipe application of GPR, a non-destructive testing method that can detect defects and cavities within and outside mainline diameter (>18 in / 450mm) non-ferrous (reinforced concrete, vitrified clay, PVC, HDPE, etc.) pipes. The key advantage of PPR is the unique ability to map pipe wall thickness and deterioration including voids ...

  • Balancing growth and conservation - Precast concrete manholes become part of the stormwater solution

    When American Fork, Utah, decided to approve construction of a 175-acre commercial center, the city engineers had to consider the environmental effect it would have on a 45-acre wetland right next door. Under the EPA´s Phase II Storm Water Rules, adapted in late 1999, almost any city large enough to require a storm sewer system must balance growth with the environmental impacts of ...

  • Biocorrosion in drinking water pipes

    Copper is widely used in drinking water distribution systems due to its relatively low cost and favorable mechanical properties. However, copper corrosion may generate copper concentrations exceeding the thresholds prescribed by international drinking water standards. In-situ measurements performed in an actual system found that the copper mass released under flowing water conditions (pipe ...

  • Intake Pipe Repair

    Major problems can cause catastrophic damages to a facility’s operations. The accumulative cost of: repairs, labor, and downtime can add up. This 24 inch diameter intake pipe, located at a U.S. Power Plant, was leaking above the ground just below the disc valve. The plant’s maintenance engineers needed a proven, reliable and economical solution to fix this ...

  • Preventing & Thawing Frozen Pipes

    A “how-to” guide on preventing and thawing frozen pipes. As temperatures drop below freezing around the country, it’s important to be informed of the cold weather’s effect on your water pipes. When temperatures are below freezing, pipes in unheated areas are subject to freezing causing messy, and often expensive issues. Just one burst pipe running at 4-8 ...

  • Quadratic approximations for pipe friction

    This paper develops quadratic approximations to the classical models of Darcy–Weisbach and Hazen–Williams for frictional head loss in water pipes. Key elements of the technique are selecting the approximation domain and minimizing the relative error. A comparison for individual pipes over a range of diameter, roughness, and Reynolds number showed that the approximation provides ...

  • Combined application of Pipe Penetrating Radar and LIDAR for large diameter pipe inspection

    Abstract: Pipe Penetrating Radar (PPR) is the underground in-pipe application of ground penetrating radar (GPR), a non-destructive testing method that can detect defects and cavities within and outside mainline diameter (>18 in./450mm) non-metallic (reinforced concrete, vitrified clay, PVC, HDPE, etc.) underground pipes. Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) has become an accepted method for ...

  • Measuring Strains in Buried Flexible Pipes

    A field measurement system is described for determining strains in buried flexible pipes. The microprocessor-based system obtains data that is subsequently analyzed on minicomputers or mainframe machines. The field system is also capable of analyzing the data using its own microprocessor provided that a graphics terminal is available. Numerical algorithms for analyzing the data are developed, and ...
