Direct Pipe® Trenchless Method – Overview of Feasibility, Engineering, and Construction with Case Study Examples For Practical Application

GeoEngineers

Wed, Jul 15, 2020 2:00 PM EDT

Following its first use in Germany in 2007, Direct Pipe® (DP) has rapidly developed into a unique and critical option for steel pipeline installations. DP draws on conventional, steerable microtunneling technology to excavate the ground in the proposed pipe heading. The Pipe Thruster machine pushes or jacks the pipe through the ground utilizing a circular, hydraulically-actuated clamp that grips the outside of the pipe and thrusts it along its heading.

Using case history examples, principal engineer, Jon Robison, PE, from GeoEngineers will also present the DP method and technology, share its advantages, and discuss potential applications and risks from a trenchless and geotechnical engineering perspective. Robison will introduce the critical concepts of steel design engineering, including stress analyses, and buckling which are especially important for pipe that will be subsequently subjected to high operating pressures. Finally, he will discuss the DP construction process, documentation, and quality assurance.

Delivering Reliability, Resiliency and Sustainability

Logistec Sanexen

In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, water infrastructure resiliency is more important than ever. On June 2, Cornell University’s School of Civil and Environmental Engineering issued its final Report “Performance Evaluation of Aqua-Pipe under Earthquake-Induced Ground Deformation” which details technical findings confirming that SANEXEN’s next-generation of water technology is proven to withstand severe earthquake conditions and natural disasters.

Experts Martin Bureau, VP Innovation at SANEXEN and Benoit Côté, President of SANEXEN Water will share how the resiliency achieved by the Aqua-Pipe technology has exceeded all known standards and outperformed every other solution on the planet and what it means for cities and municipalities across North America.

The webinar will outline how the next-generation of water technology delivers the highest degree of resiliency, reliability as well as being sustainable for the environment and the economy.

Join us for this live event – a free, 1-hour educational webinar.

Manhole Rehabilitation Pays Dividends for Decades

Madewell

Beyond I&I reduction, the cause for Manhole Rehabilitation is clear: restore structural integrity, provide corrosion protection, and reduce flow to the WWTP for increased capacity and decreased cost. Understand the engineer’s role in assessment, specification, and onsite inspection. Know the contractor’s role—execution is everything. Hear testimony of municipal stakeholders on ROI and long-term performance. If you’re part of a team that cares about the collection system, Dividends for Decades is 60 minutes well invested. Learn well from a team of experts at Commonwealth Engineers, Culy Contracting, and Madewell Products.

What is Measured, Improves: Maximizing Infiltration Reduction and Rehabilitation Effectiveness

Electroscan

Locating and reducing inflow/infiltration (I/I) is a common challenge facing wastewater collection systems, yet effective identification of infiltration has been nearly impossible using Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV), Smoke Testing, and Dye Flood Testing results.

Too often Agencies only learn that I/I flow reduction goals were missed after multi-year flow monitoring results; citing ineffective prioritization, poor contractor performance, and inability to reliability certify repairs as watertight, especially after service restoration.

Today, Agencies are adopting machine-intelligent Focused Electrode Leak Location (FELL), in accordance with ASTM F2550, to identify I/I and test rehabilitation as watertight. Unbiased and automated inspection results are replacing legacy ambiguous and subjective testing to (1) prioritize pipes with the highest infiltration, (2) test the watertightness of repairs & that rehabilitation meets contract requirements, and (3) compare before and after leakage results to get ‘same day’ estimated percent reductions in flow.
