A steerable/distance enhanced penetrometer delivery system: Phase I. Topical report, August 1994--August 1995

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The characterization, monitoring, and remediation of many of the nation`s highly contaminated sites are among the highest priorities of the Department of Energy (DOE). In underground contaminated sites, detection and mapping of the plume of contamination and in-situ remediation are the first steps towards clean up. The needs for these steps include a depth capability ranging from tens of feet to between 100 to 200 feet, ability to go around underground obstacles with curvatures that do not damage downhole components, and downhole access for delivery of environmental sensors. In addition, in some instances it is necessary to use light weight ... continued below

Description

The characterization, monitoring, and remediation of many of the nation`s highly contaminated sites are among the highest priorities of the Department of Energy (DOE). In underground contaminated sites, detection and mapping of the plume of contamination and in-situ remediation are the first steps towards clean up. The needs for these steps include a depth capability ranging from tens of feet to between 100 to 200 feet, ability to go around underground obstacles with curvatures that do not damage downhole components, and downhole access for delivery of environmental sensors. In addition, in some instances it is necessary to use light weight equipment over underground storage tanks in order to avoid collapse of the tank. Baseline technologies of {open_quotes}aim and shoot{close_quotes} well drilling do not satisfy all of these needs, are not as efficient, and can further contaminate the site by bringing underground contaminants to the surface. As a result new technologies are needed to carry out underground site clean up more efficiently. This report describes phase I of the development of a device for the control and penetration of penetrometers termed the Position Location Device (POLO). Work consisted of the design of steering components and vibratory penetration components.
