Standard Practice for Use of Distributed Optical Fiber Sensing Systems for Monitoring the Impact of Ground Movements During Tunnel and Utility Construction on Existing Underground Utilities
|Publication Date:||1 October 2014|
This practice specifically addresses the means and methods for the use of distributed optical fiber sensors for monitoring ground movements during tunnel and utility construction and its impact on existing utilities.
This practice applies to the process of selecting suitable materials, design, installation, data collection, data processing and reporting of results.
This practice applies to all utilities that transport water, sewage, oil, gas, chemicals, electric power, communications and mass media content.
This practice applies to all tunnels that transport and/or store water or sewage.
This practice also applies to tunnels that carry the utilities in (1.3), water for hydropower, traffic, rail, freight, capsule transport, and those used for storage.
