Time Reversal Technology For Pipelines Condition Assessment
Urban pipeline systems are vital, large, long-lived, complex, largely inaccessible, and aging, fraught with deficiencies and inefficiencies that result in massive losses of water resources and energy use. Thus, they present an enormous challenge to making cities sustainable, adaptive, and carbon neutral.
This pipeline condition assessment technology is pioneered by experts who have leveraged advances in research and engineering science to deliver unique and optimal performances. The technology introduced the use of Time Reversal (TR) for defect detection and condition assessment of pipelines. In fact, TR technology is reliable, cost-effective, and has a long-range capability. It possesses the unique feature of providing high resolution while being non-intrusive and non-disruptive.
The TR technology can detect existing leaks, bursts, blockages, malfunctioning devices (e.g., air valve), pipe wall strength condition, and harmful transient. The software provides the following functionality:
Active testing: Actively probing the system to control the resolution of localization
Passive testing: To detect bursts and harmful transients
Real time monitoring: To assesses system dynamics and demand patterns
On-demand and automatically generated reports
On demand sensor control and sensor expansion
Flexible & High sampling rate
