CASE STUDY

Tunnel Vision A California firm blends technologies to make short work of a tight schedule and difficult conditions. John May is accustomed to taking on challenging projects. But even he soon recognized that this one would be different. Meeting the project requirements would involve multiple technologies, advanced software and a team of dedicated and— quite literally—flexible surveyors that would spend days working in a cramped underground pipe built to carry water, not humans. By John Stenmark

The work originated from a utility owner in Northern California who needed to rehabilitate a 90-year-old buried water pipeline. Over the years, the 54-inch (137 cm) diameter steel pipe had received periodic maintenance, retrofits and repairs, including a concrete lining that would introduce significant challenges as the project proceeded. The most recent inspection revealed the need for more extensive work. Because the pipeline lies close to major traffic arteries and a water treatment plant, excavation to repair or replace it would be prohibitively expensive and disruptive. The client’s engineers decided to use a process called “slip lining” to install a new pipe inside the existing water main. The approach would eliminate the need for extensive excavation and greatly reduce the time and cost of upgrading the old infrastructure. In order to design the slip lining and installation process, the engineers needed precise information on the existing pipeline. The work fell to May, a project manager at Californiabased Towill, Inc. He and his colleagues were called on to survey the interior of roughly 1,800 ft (550m) of the active, pressurized waterline. In addition to determining the horizontal and vertical alignment of the pipe, they needed to provide data on the pipe’s ovality, or deformation from its original circular shape caused by external loading at the surface. May explained that the waterline had been installed as two semicircular sections. The sections were welded together using lock bar joints to form a continuous pipe. Over time, the top of the pipe had deflected downward in some areas, limiting the space available for the new slip lining. The engineers also asked for information on bends and vertical deflections in the alignment, the ends of visible lock bars, and the locations where transmission and distribution lines connected to the main. The Towill team knew that the only way to gather such dense, detailed data was from inside the pipe. It would not be a fun place to work.

Barriers to Entry “It was difficult going from the very beginning,” said JR Gregory, a geospatial specialist at Towill who led the pipe survey as well as data processing. Because the pipe served as an active water main, the client was determined to minimize the time it could be shut down and drained for the survey. “Our original plan called for 10 days of work inside the pipe,” Gregory

to be accurate and complete. There would be no possibility to return to the site to collect any missing or questionable data. May explained that in the “old days” the interior of the pipe would be measured using a wooden cross frame that could adjust to find the size of the pipe. The process is very slow, labor intensive and prone to inaccurate or incomplete data. It can’t accurately locate bends and other aspects that are important in making the slip line fit. 3D scanning was proposed, but it also came with some concerns. “We often use a blend of systems to maximize the value and efficiency of our services, but this project really put us to the test. There was a suggestion to use a remotely operated transporter

scanner. But we determined that approach couldn’t produce the needed accuracy.” Drawing on their broad experience in laser scanning, the Towill team decided to use both a 3D scanner and total station. They selected a Trimble S7 total station and a Trimble SX10 scanning total station, both controlled using Trimble Access software running on a Trimble Tablet. Towill also owned a Faro Focus X330, which could handle the short-range measurements needed for the work. In places, concrete lining reduced the interior diameter to as little as 48 inches (1.2m) and the scanning setups were as little as 24 inches (60 cm) from the pipe walls. Prior to the field work, the team tested their methods and targets in a corridor at their office. The poor lighting inside the pipe raised concerns. “We were aware that in this environment some of the intensity values might bleed out on the checkerboard targets,” Gregory said. “To guard against that we used a mixed approach of spheres and checkerboard targets.”

It saved time, as we had unknowingly bumped several targets during work in the restrictive environment.” He used a semi-automatic process in TRW to extract coordinates and elevations for the spheres. In many places those values would be used to compute the location of the scanner. With the control established, Gregory next imported the scanner data into TRW and registered the scans into a single point cloud. He made additional quality checks and confirmed the maximum residual for all scanner locations was 0.03 ft (9 mm). The point cloud

was then cleaned to remove noise and unwanted objects captured in the scans. Due to the confined space, the surveyors and their equipment were often captured in the raw data and needed to be removed from the point cloud. From the clean, fully-registered point cloud, Gregory created a best-fit horizontal and vertical alignment along the center of the pipe. When the team analyzed the alignment, they found multiple horizontal and vertical angle points that were not shown on any earlier plans or as-built drawings. To model the proposed slip line, Towill technicians used TRW to create a design cylinder inside the point cloud. The cylinder was extruded along the best-fit alignment and the software automatically compared the cylinder to the point cloud at 0.25 ft (8 cm) intervals. This clash detection analysis enabled Towill to recommend the optimal size for the slip line and also to identify areas of potential problems. For example, bends or constrictions in the existing pipe could cause binding during installation of the new lining. To avoid this, Towill recommended shorter segments of lining be used in certain areas. In addition to technical reports, Towill exported the results in AutoCAD Civil3D and LAS formats. The

They avoided millions of dollars of costs for excavation, traffic delays and economic distress to local businesses. “Things are on track with their construction schedule,” May said. The survey and analysis exposed areas of conflict and enabled engineers to adjust for problems before they occurred. “Our work will greatly reduce changes in the field that the client might have encountered if forced to use less accurate and comprehensive data.” 
