  • Submarine cable cathodic protection

    Corrosion is a significant problem for underwater structures, particularly in environments where there are conditions that accelerate corrosion such as stray electrical currents. The New York Power Authority (NYPA) is concerned about corrosion on their 345 kV submarine cable that runs across Long Island Sound and brings 690 MW of power to the 2.6 million people on Long Island, New York. In 1994, a team of NYPA engineers and consultants was formed to analyze the effects of corrosion on the power circuit. Ultimately, a specially designed corrosion protection system was installed to mitigate corrosion on the cables. The corrosion protection system includes a unique monitoring and control system that regulates the protection and provides feedback for the corrosion system performance. A system of reference electrodes and a current density sensor in the water is used. The system self-corrects for the voltage shift between the land-based drainage point and the location where protection is applied. Features of the computer-controlled corrosion protection system are described in this article.

  • Side Scan Sonar Applied to water reservoir

    Side Scan Sonar (SSS) is a well-known geophysical tool for underwater mapping. Using acoustic frequencies, usually from 100 to 2000 kHz, this tool can generate a very detailed bottom surface image from rivers, reservoirs, and from the sea. Very portable systems nowadays can also allow getting images from areas as shallow as 1 m depth, such as urban lakes, small rivers, and near-shore areas. This article discusses the SSS applicability for reservoir studies related to margins stability. The focus here is on the Porto Primavera Reservoir, located at the most western part of São Paulo state, 800 km from São Paulo city. With a water surface area greater than 200 km long × 11 km wide, the margins of the reservoir have been severely affected by an erosion process which started from waves created due to the large wind patches. Since a few years ago in some parts of the reservoir the margin receded 40 to 60 meters from the original border, causing some problems for the local population, to the company which manage the reservoir, and also created some environmental issues. A study based on side scan images was conducted by IPT to try to protect these margins from wave actions. Some special underwater structures were created and implemented at strategic positions on the bottom surface and also at the margin, in order to minimize the wave energy before it hits the border. During the first part of the project the SSS survey was conducted in order to find the appropriate place to set these underwater structures. On the second part of the project the SSS survey was conducted in order to monitor these underwater structures. Successful field operations and detailed images obtained from more than 300 km of SSS survey lines showed how important this geophysical tool is for reservoir investigation.

  • Underwater structure inspection with laser light stripes

    As international trade is getting prosperous, commercial ports need to accommodate hundreds of vessels everyday. When a vessel berths the wharf carelessly, it is possible to cause some damage to the pier beneath the waterline without leaving any evidence. Generally, scuba divers are sent down with camera to take photos or video tapes of the underwater structure for further studies of the damage. We propose using a laser light stripe technique to overcome the problem of turbid water. From geometry we know that a straight line projected to a plane remains a straight line. On the other hand, if there are any concave or convex features on the plane, the projected line will deform accordingly. So we can extract information, such as position or depth of the concavity, from the deformation of the projected line. In our study, we project a laser beam stripe on the target and use a CCD camera to capture the image. With image processing, we can extract the profile of the cross section, thus, the overall 3D measurement of the target. We verify this idea with different shapes of objects submerged in different levels of turbid water in a test tank. Preliminary results indicate that this device can detect narrow gaps of 1 cm in NTU level 2.5 foul water from a distance of 60 cm with coverage of 60 cm wide.

  • AUV localization using depth perception of underwater structures from a monocular camera

    In this paper, we propose a method of AUV localization and mapping using visual measurement of underwater structures. Since the inertial navigation system (INS) of AUV suffers from drift, visual observation of fixed objects can enhance the localization performance. In a framework of pose graph optimization, depth map estimation of underwater structures and tracing of AUV trajectory are concurrently handled. Estimation of absolute scale is also resolved by exploiting incremental measurements of inertial sensors. The proposed method is validated by experiments performed in a structured basin environment.

  • Nonlinear transformation of waves above submerged structures: Application to coastal protection

    On the base of data of laboratory experiment the transformation of waves above reefs was investigated. The possibility of essential decreasing not only wave height, but the mean period of waves was testified. It was revealed that a system of two reefs better reduces the mean wave period. The decreasing of the mean wave period depends on the distance between the reefs. It was shown that submerged structures can influence on transport of sediments due to change of asymmetry of waves passing above them.

  • Underwater video mosaicing using AUV and its application to vehicle navigation

    Underwater mosaic images have important information to survey the ocean floor, creatures, inspection of underwater structures, etc. Usually, the image acquisition of the underwater environment is performed by the human operators in the support vessels using remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) and towed fishes. However, the tasks have difficulties caused by their operating environment and poor visibility. This paper describes an underwater video mosaicing system using an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV).

  • The development of a hybrid advanced composite-syntactic foam structural component for use in undersea vehicles

    This paper presents the progress of an ongoing program to develop a lightweight, highly buoyant structural member for open-frame, remotely operated vehicles (ROVs). The structural component is fabricated from advanced composite materials and syntactic foam. This unique hybrid member is intended for, but not limited to, underwater vehicles. The paper demonstrates that composite materials and syntactic foams can offer great benefits when incorporated into the design of underwater structures. The element employs a syntactic foam core, which is then over-wrapped with an advanced composite braid. The triaxial carbon braid is then impregnated with an epoxy resin and cured at room or an elevated temperature. The advanced composite hybrid offers enhanced axial stiffness and strength properties comparable to metals as well as a unique property, positive buoyancy. This is accomplished by incorporating flotation into the structure of the vehicle. When the structure of an underwater vehicle is positively buoyant, additional payload may be applied. Minimization of the existing flotation package, which is required to achieve neutral buoyancy, will also help to reduce the overall size of the vehicle and improve its maneuverability, both on deck and while underwater.<<ETX>>

  • An Auxiliary Navigation System for an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle

    It is desirable to have an auxiliary navigation system on-board an autonomous underwater vehicle to increase the reliability of its navigation when it works within an underwater structure. An inertial navigation system has been analyzed for this purpose. It shows an unacceptable positioning error due to the low accuracy of a practical stable platform. A simple gyrocompass with an appropriate algorithm has been proposed as an auxiliary navigation system. A flow chart of the proposed algorithm is given in this paper.
