  Transportation respectfully requests Controlling Board approval for an agency release competitive selection in the amount of $400,034.16, from fund 7002, ALI 771412 (Planning and Research - Federal), in FY18, to contract with The University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) in Arlington, Texas, for the pooled fund project, 'Structural Design Methodology for Spray Applied Pipe Liners in Gravity Storm Water Conveyance Conduits'.  
  Through this pooled fund project, ODOT plans to work with other State Departments of Transportation (DOTs) to develop design equations for structural renewal of gravity storm water conveyance culverts using spray applied pipe liners for both cementitious and resin-based. Using the result of this research, ODOT will be able to apply design equations for utilization of spray-applied lining materials. This will maintain safety of our roadways while reducing costs for ODOT and construction disruption to the traveling public. The primary benefit to ODOT include advantages of using spray applied liners for renewal of culvert and drainage structures by development of appropriate design equations.

A Request for Proposal was issued, and University of Texas at Arlington was selected. Since this is a pooled fund, participation and funding are required from other states. Florida, Minnesota, New York, North Carolina and Pennsylvania have committed to participating. ODOT will commit $75,000.00 towards this project. The other states have committed the remaining $325,034.16, totaling $400,034.16.

Spray applied pipe liners are a trenchless technology that provides a method to structurally rehabilitate concrete and metal gravity storm water conveyance conduits with minimal impact to the travelling public. The liner consists of a cementitious or resin based material that is applied in an existing host storm water conveyance conduit via a centrifugal remote applicator or by manual application. Sufficient soil support and stabilization of the host conduit is required prior to placement of the spray applied liner. The liner will provide the structural load carrying capacity without the requirement to adhere to the host conduit.

The primary objective of this research is to develop a design methodology for both cementitious and resin based spray applied pipe liner materials for structural rehabilitation of gravity storm water conveyance culverts. This design methodology will be applicable for round, elliptical, pipe arch, arch, and box shapes. All parameters of the host culvert that may impact the design thickness such as vertical or horizontal deflections, unsymmetrical racking, section loss, cracks, material geometry (corrugations), or protrusions such as bolts and flanges will be considered. Additionally, practical limitations on the use of this design methodology will be covered.

Dr. Najafi, director of Center for Underground Infrastructure Research & Education (CUIRE) at the University of Texas at Arlington, will be the PI on this project. He will also lead the task for development of structural design methodology for cementitious and resin based spray applied liners. Dr. Yu will be UTA Co-PI and lead computational modeling and lab testing The CUIRE experience in culvert and pipe assessment research will be enhanced by retaining the services of American Structurepoint, Inc., Columbus, Ohio, Rehabilitation Resources Solutions LLC, Hilliard, Ohio, as well as LEO Consulting, LLC, Chesterfield, Missouri. American Structurepoint Inc. will be a subcontractor to CUIRE/UTA. American Structurepoint (Ohio-based subcontractor), will lead the preparation of performance construction specifications. Rehabilitation Resources Solutions LLC will lead CIPP design review. LEO Consulting, LLC will be responsible for QA/QC. CUIRE will have the overall responsibility for managing the project. This includes coordinating technical activities, preparing periodic progress reports, tracking budgets, and meeting project milestones. Project objectives and team member roles will be clearly defined before the work begins. A computerized management and budget tracking system will provide a status report with the progress report and invoices. Schedules will be reviewed monthly to ensure that milestones are being met.
