Condition Assessment

Abstract

This project was designed to improve acoustic signal processing for pipe condition assessment in an experimental environment, which includes burial, pressurization, and subsequent intentional damage to the pre-stressing wires in three specimens of prestressed concrete cylinder pipe (PCCP). Research partners: WERF and EPA.

Originally funded as WERF project INFR1SG09e
