Prologue to Trenchless Methods Presented by Glenn M. Boyce, PhD, PE Senior Associates April 21, 2009

Slide 2

Presentation Objectives Provide a superior comprehension of trenchless strategies utilized for new establishments Learn the points of interest and restrictions of the techniques Discuss temporary worker capabilities

Slide 3

Types of Infrastructure Gas – Pressure Water – Pressure Sewer – Gravity Drainage – Gravity Power – Non-gravity Communications – Non-gravity

Slide 4

Trenchless Methods Impact moling Pipe smashing Auger drilling Pilot tube Pipe jacking/Microtunneling Conventional burrowing Horizontal directional penetrating Pipe blasting

Slide 5

Generic Size and Length Method Size Length Moling 2" - 12" 150' Ramming 8" - 72" 300' Auger Bore 8" - 60" 250' Pilot Tube 6" - 42" 300' Microtunneling 12" - 108" 1,500' Pipe Jacking >54" 3,000' HDD 2" - 48" 6,500' Tunneling >60" Any length

Slide 6

What to Do? Pick the correct strategy Use set up "Benchmarks" Collect data/research Plan ahead Conduct chance appraisals Include components to deal with clashes

Slide 7

Use the Right Method Open cut Horizontal Directional Drilling Auger drilling Pipe slamming Pipe jacking Microtunneling Tunneling Pilot Tube 1996

Slide 8

Auger Boring Road intersections Cohesive soils Short separations Above water table Need steel packaging Minor controlling

Slide 9

60-inch Diameter SBU-A

Slide 10

Pilot Tube Method Medium separations Straight arrangements with great exactness Variety of soils Smaller shafts Moderate hardware costs

Slide 11

Step 1

Slide 15

Step 2

Slide 16

Pilot Tube + "In addition to" Now utilized as a guide for other technique Auger drilling Pipe Ramming

Slide 17

Pipe Ramming Wide scope of breadths Soils just Continuously upheld Typically < 300' Above and beneath water table Need steel packaging No directing control

Slide 18

Installation Method Ramming in nonstop length or sections

Slide 19

Ramming in Progress

Slide 20

Pilot tube

Slide 21

Pipe Jacking Large widths Soils and blended ground Face bolstered Long separations Above the water table Steerable

Slide 22

Microtunneling Range of measurements (> 12") All ground sorts Continuous face bolster Long separations Above or underneath water table Range of pipe materials Steerable to line and level

Slide 23

Micro versus Utility Tunneling Remotely worked Precise direction Pipes jacked from dispatch pit Continuous support to confront Conventional Rib & Lagging Tunnel Microtunnel

Slide 24

Tunnel Shield Construction Lining is worked inside shield. Coating does not move longitudinally after situation.

Slide 25

Required Axial Thrust versus Length of Drive for Same Diameter

Slide 26

Open Cut What happens Trenchless Understand and plan Opposite Approaches

Slide 27

What to Do? Comprehend the site history and potential hindrances Look at old flying photographs Conduct a geotechnical program Locate all utilities

Slide 28

Potential Obstructions Cobbles or Boulders Wood Fill materials Hard zones Mixed appearances

Slide 29

Typical Machine Sizes Piercing – 2 to 3 inches Pilot Tube – 6 to 36 inches HDD – 6 to 54 inches Auger Boring – 10 to 60 inches Pipe Jacking/MT – 12 to 96 inches Pipe Ramming – 12 to 144 inches Shield – 60 to 144 inches

Slide 30

Typical CMP Culverts

Slide 31

Replacement Issues Need to expand estimate for oceanic section Must continue existing duct dynamic amid development Minimize costs Develop the best cross segment Use the correct materials

Slide 32

Possible Solutions

Slide 33

Consume the Culvert

Slide 34

Use Liner Plate Tunnel

Slide 35

Design Solutions Built a parallel pipe barrel Increases limit Allow the current to stay in administration Get to utilize the materials you need Slipline the current after new Built another passage and leave cover

Slide 36

Closing Thoughts Methods as yet advancing Many half and half strategies rising Better arrangement control rising in twist drill drilling applications Must recognize potential deterrents (or get X-beam vision)

Slide 37

HORIZONTAL DIRECTIONAL DRILLING (HDD) Samuel T. Ariaratnam, PhD, PE Arizona State University

Slide 38

Background Lengths up to 8,400 feet Diameters of 2" – 54" Applications: Utility conductors Pipelines Gravity sewers Force mains Horizontal remediation wells Geotechnical examinations

Slide 39

Pilot Bore and Tracking Pilot Bore

Pipe Material Distribution Underground Construction Magazine 9 th Annual Survey, June 2007

Slide 59

Conclusions HDD is a negligibly meddling trenchless development technique suited for profoundly congested urban regions and high movement zones Horizontal Directional Drilling gear is equipped for introducing an extensive variety of utilities HDD will never supplant conventional open-cut strategies; be that as it may, they supplement each other

Slide 60

PIPE BURSTING Samuel T. Ariaratnam, Ph.D., P.E. Arizona State University

Slide 61

Pipe Bursting Lengths normally 300-600 ft Diameters up to 42" Applications: substitution of constrain mains substitution of gravity sewers Static Head Pneumatic Head

Slide 62

Common Types of Bursting Systems Pneumatic Systems - Usually incorporate a pneumatic apparatus and winch and blasts the pipe utilizing the motor vitality of the instrument. The pipe is typically joined to either the burst head or instrument. Static Systems – Usually incorporate a pressure driven power source and a pole transporting framework and utilize high tonnage to maneuver new line into place. Little Portable Systems - Either pneumatic or static for doing little measurement and short runs (e.g. laterals).

Slide 63

Introduction Emerging field of pipe "Substitution of the host pipe by dividing the current conductor and introducing a totally new pipe of equivalent measurement or bigger in its place."

Slide 64

Applications Total pipe substitution Typical upsize as much as 20 – 30% Industrial & Municipal - Main Line & Laterals Various host and item pipe materials Continuous or Sectional pipe establishment

Slide 65

Pipe Bursting Feasibility May accomplish bring down costs contrasted with open trench Less development time Minimal unearthing Social cost reserve funds Reduces ground settlement Low ecological effect

Slide 66

Static Method (Continuous)

Slide 67

Static Method (Sectional)

Slide 68

Pneumatic Method

Slide 69

Almost a wide range of pipe can be blasted … Cast press Steel Ductile iron High Density Polyethylene Polyvinylchloride Concrete Reinforced solid Asbestos bond Clay

Slide 71

650mm (26") 750mm (30") 350mm (14")

Slide 72

Conclusions Pipe blasting is the main trenchless strategy fit for introducing another pipe of equivalent or bigger distance across as a substitution choice Almost any sort of existing funnel can be blasted and supplanted with most pipe materials Proper arranging is basic to venture achievement!

Slide 74

Introduction The larger part of trenchless temporary workers are solid and take after great establishment hones However, offices must know about those few "cowpoke" contractual workers Qualifying temporary workers is a prescribed practice for trenchless tasks to guarantee utilization of equipped contractual workers

Slide 75

Specifications Manufacturers Recommended Specifications Industry/Association Specification Guidelines Project Specific

Slide 76

Testing & Inspection Quality Assurance & Controls in Specifications Trained Inspectors Testing by Owner Laboratory Final CCTV Inspection of the Installed Pipe

Slide 77

Protection of Existing Utilities Call in Locates Obtain As-Built Maps (Shared Responsibility) Mark Utilities (Utility Owners) Confirm Utilities (Pothole) (Excavator) Protect (Excavator)

Slide 78

Protection of Existing Utilities – Locate Marks

Slide 79

As-Builts, Operator Logs, Notes Contractor is in charge of denoting the arrangements to demonstrate all vertical and flat deviations between the outline and real establishment Operator logs/notes ought to be kept up and refreshed day by day by the Contractor and ought to incorporate Pipe number, profundity, pitch, controlling summons, and notes

Slide 80

Logbook/Field Notes

Slide 81

Contractor Submittals Proof of accomplishment on earlier comparable activities Pipe material, breadth, length Make/model of gear, direction hardware, liquid blend Slurry transfer arrange Contingency arrange Safe arrangement and conventions Certification by the maker that the Contractor's staff are prepared in the utilization of the hardware Training confirmation for pipe establishment Fusion preparing affirmation for HDPE Construction Plan & Installation Schedule Traffic Control Plan
