DETAILED ENGINEERING FOR THE RECONSTRUCTION OF CARTAGENA DE INDIAS SUBMARINE OUTFALL (COLOMBIA)
- Start Date / End Date: 2011
- Place: CARTAGENA DE INDIAS (COLOMBIA)
- Scope: Detailed engineering
A report was written after the pipe was found faulty during the sinking process to justify the calculations done in order to guarantee the adequate sinking of the Cartagena de Indias submarine outfall pipes.
The sinking study was conducted in three different sections:• Section 1: from a depth of 10 m to 16 m.• Section 2: from a depth of 16 m to 19 m.• Section 3: from a depth of 19 m to 23 m.
Moreover, the sinking process planned was superficially described.
The characteristics of the pipe:• Material: PE100.• Pipe: Outside diameter 2,000 mm SDR 26
