Optical Fiber Testing/Interface Temperature

ASTM International Committee F36 on Technology and Underground Utilities is developing several proposed new standards. Two such standards are WK39910, Practice for the Use of Distributed Optical Fiber Sensing for Monitoring Ground Movements Around Utilities and Tunnels, and WK41891, Practice for the Full-Length Monitoring of the Interface Temperature of a Cured in Place Pipe Lining Process.

“WK39910 will allow us to have a uniform and consistent manner in which the utility industry can monitor ground movements around pipes and tunnels to manage damage to existing structures better,” says Jey K. Jeyapalan, chairman, Committee F36, and consultant, Civic Enterprises LLC. “WK41891 will allow us to manage energy usage more efficiently during the rehabilitation of aging sewer and water lines.” Both task groups have been holding teleconferences on the fourth Thursday of each month to build consensus on what to include in the proposed standard.

Jeyapalan notes that the eventual use of WK39910 and WK41891 to measure ground movements or temperature in and around underground facilities using tools such as optical fibers will prove to an important step toward meeting the goals of an evolving utility industry.

Jeyapalan invites all interested parties to join in the stanards developiing activities of F36 and to attend its meeting in Chicago on Oct. 6. The meeting will be held in conjunction with the 86th Annual Water Environment Federation Technical Exhibition and Conference.

The scope of Committee F36 is to develop standards for the:

  • Uses of underground utilities and their appurtenance other than their originally intended function;
  • Application of current technology for the maintenance and repair of underground facilities; and,
  • Additional design considerations for unique environments.
