Trenchless Installation of Drainage Culverts with Pipe Ramming Method

  1. 1. HIGHWAY & RAILROAD CULVERT INSTALLATION & REPLACEMENT WITH PIPE RAMMING PRESENTER(S) NAMES
  2. 2. FACTS ABOUT THE U.S RAIL SYSTEMPIPE RAMMINGCULVERT INSTALLATION AND REPLACEMENT • Critical part of US transportation infrastructure. • More than 150,000 miles of mainline rail routes. • Moves more freight than any other rail system in any other country. • SOURCE: American Association of Railroads
  3. 3. DRAINAGE PROBLEMSPIPE RAMMINGCULVERT INSTALLATION AND REPLACEMENT • Lack of maintenance • Lack of inspection programs • Lack of capacity/flow, flooding and liability • Ponding of water causes pavement and sub grade deterioration and may lead to washout failures
  4. 4. CULVERT INSTALLATION AND REPLACEMENTPIPE RAMMING WASHOUT
  5. 5. WASHOUTPIPE RAMMINGCULVERT INSTALLATION AND REPLACEMENT • The failure rate has the potential to cause property damage and loss of life. • Lack of maintenance and delays in repairs has translated into soaring construction expenditures.
  6. 6. CULVERT INSTALLATION AND REPLACEMENTPIPE RAMMING PROBLEMS AREN’T LIMITED TO RAIL
  7. 7. What is Pipe Ramming?PIPE RAMMINGCULVERT INSTALLATION AND REPLACEMENT A pneumatic hammer installs an open ended steel casing that is cleaned out during and after completion of pipe installation.
  8. 8. PIPE RAMMING APPLICATIONSPIPE RAMMINGCULVERT INSTALLATION AND REPLACEMENT Steel casing installation for: • Water • Sewer • Gas • Drainage culverts
  9. 9. AdvantagesPIPE RAMMINGCULVERT INSTALLATION AND REPLACEMENT • Trenchless • Able to swallow rock as large as the inside diameter of the casing • Method does not remove soil until casing is installed • Minimizes voids –Roads –Railroads • Reduced soil compaction
  10. 10. Preferred for Adverse Soil ConditionsPIPE RAMMINGCULVERT INSTALLATION AND REPLACEMENT • Free flowing sand • Cobble conditions • Large rock formations • Excessive ground water
  11. 11. SWALLOWS LARGE OBSTRUCTIONSPIPE RAMMINGCULVERT INSTALLATION AND REPLACEMENT • Rock swallowed during ram • Spoil removed post ram 54” Casing
  12. 12. CULVERT SWALLOWINGPIPE RAMMINGCULVERT INSTALLATION AND REPLACEMENT An oversized casing is rammed over existing culvert. After installation is complete, old culvert and spoil is removed. Steel casing can serve as the drainage culvert or as a carrier pipe for another pipe inserted within.
  13. 13. TELESCOPING METHODPIPE RAMMING FOR LONGER DISTANCESCULVERT INSTALLATION AND REPLACEMENT An oversized pipe is rammed over the existing culvert until production ceases and is cleaned out. Further progress is made with smaller casings installed within the oversized pipe in the same manner.
  14. 14. METHOD IMPLEMENTATIONTrenchless Culvert Replacement Under Railways with the Pipe Ramming Method
  15. 15. RAM SITE LAYOUTPIPE RAMMINGCULVERT INSTALLATION AND REPLACEMENT Note: Follow local regulations for sloping or shoring of pit.

COLLETS AND RAMMERPIPE RAMMINGCULVERT INSTALLATION AND REPLACEMENT Install Pushing Collets/Collars Install Rammer Collets and collars help to distribute the The rammer is locked into the collets when ramming force to the face of the pipe. the tool is started. The collets also lock the rammer into place.
