Utility Members and CE112 Students Visit CSI

On the vibrant day of October 17th, the Center for Smart Infrastructure (CSI) lab
welcomed members from Pacific, Nor-Cal, and Western TAG utilities, as well as
enthusiastic students from CE112 – Water & Wastewater Systems Design and
Operation on October 19th. During these visits, we performed tension tests on 8-inch
iPVC pipes, incorporating fiber optic sensors. The pipes were subjected to testing until a
notable failure and water leakage were observed. We all see water splash! Additionally,
we provided demonstrations of innovative technologies, including Spot, AR/VR
technology, smart pavement, and drones, to showcase the advanced capabilities of the
CSI lab.
