  • Valuing information for sewer replacement decisions

    Decision-making for sewer asset management is partially based on intuition and often lacks explicit argumentation, hampering decision transparency and reproducibility. This is not to be preferred in light of public accountability and cost-effectiveness. It is unknown to what extent each decision criterion is appreciated by decision-makers. Further insight into this relative importance improves ...

  • Case study - Wall leakage testing in the lab with acoustic camera

    Problem Facade insulation testing is usually performed by using a loudspeaker in the sending room, and record the sound pressure level (SPL) with microphones in both the sending and receiving room. The difference in SPL adjusted for the size of the dividing wall element will then give an estimate of the sound reduction quality of that element. However these measurements will not say ...

  • Case study - Filming low-frequency structure born noise with acoustic camera

    Problem An apartment complex consists of five floors, with several apartments over four floors, and an attic on the top floor. In the attic an air circulation system is installed to provide circulation in the bathroms of all the apartments in the building. The circulation system is driven by an air fan distributing air through pipes going to all apartments. The air pipes are cemented in ...

  • Natural Gas Compressor

    Reciprocating engines come in all sizes, from a tiny, 10cc piston engine that powers a model airplane, to the massive Wartsila RTA 96-C, with each of its 14 cylinders displacing 1,820,000 cc. While our borescopes won’t be much help on the model airplane engine, if you work on any medium or large size reciprocating engine, the chances are good that we have a video borescope that can make ...

  • IAQ UPDATE: Using an Infrared Camera to Detect Water and Mold Problems

    A low temperature range infrared camera is a very useful tool in detecting the presence of water or moisture that ultimately leads to mold growth. Infrared or thermal inspection does not directly identify the presence of mold, but it may be used to find moisture where mold may cultivate, especially behind wall board. But Beware!  I have seen many cases where the infrared camera results have ...

  • Comparison of the inspector and rating protocol uncertainty influence in the condition rating of sewers

    Wastewater drainage systems asset management decisions, in particular regarding rehabilitation interventions, are largely dependent on close-circuit television (CCTV) inspection results. However, the results of CCTV inspections are affected by several sources of uncertainty. Within the present communication, the inspector's uncertainty is quantified by comparing periodic inspection ...
