Advanced Condition Assessement of Hunter Water's Cast Iron Watermains

Burried assets that form trunk and reticulation water mains form the largest asset group of all major water utilities. As such, considerable resources go into the maintenance, assessment and subsequent predictions on the performance of these resources. As part of Hunter Water's commitment to the Advanced Condition Assessment and Pipe Failure Prodiction Project, the University of Newcastle was invited to a number of recent exhumation sites to collect data for Activity 3 (Corrossion Modelling) of the project. This article détails the procedures used for the collection of accurate corrosion data, in order to quantiify in-situ corrosion losses of in-service ferrous pipes.

CAD/CAM’s Expanding Potential in O&P

Imagine taking a scoliosis patient's measurements by snapping a photograph and importing the image into CAD software. Imagine using this data not only to digitally design and modify the brace but also to test it for the desired in-brace modifications before actually fabricating and fitting it on a patient. These capabilities—and others like it—are no longer imaginary; they are increasingly becoming part of O&P clinical practice, thanks to quantum leaps in computer, scanning, and CAD/CAM technologies.
