Diagnostic Options for Pipeline Rehabilitationby B. Jay Schrock, JSC Intern'l Engineering, Carmichael, United States,
Abstract: The various diagnostic options utilized for solving pipeline problems/failures continue to increase at a very rapid pace. Field reconnaisance and/or man-entry of pipelines is becoming more important for solving problems in advance of crisis response. Also, close monitoring of pipelines when operating under flood flow conditions is becoming increasingly more paramount. Closed Circuit television monitoring is also becoming an important tool for evaluating smaller pipelines in the system. Computer programing the pipelines under varying flow conditions is necessary for locating hydraulic bottlenecks or potential problem areas. This will also be used if subsequent pipeline rehabilitation is necessary. Pipeline rehabilitation methods and material options are expanding virtually daily. These various technologies will be overviewed in the paper.
