Third, the construction technology 1, earthwork

(1) Measurement 1) Measurement PE water supply line pipework comprising measuring alignment, leveling and direct measurement.

2) For alignment measurement, the center line and corner of the pipeline should be measured, and the positional relationship between the pipeline and the adjacent permanent building should be measured. If necessary, a mark should be set up on the ground, and the measurement accuracy should be +n(s). . n is the number of measuring stations. The distance between the pipeline and the building is shown in the following table: Distance between water supply pipeline and building structure and other pipelines (m) Structure pipeline railway building red line street tree center electric pole cable gas pipe heating pipe sewage pipe minimum horizontal distance 5 5 1.5 1.0 1.0 1.0~2.0 1.5 1.5
3) When performing pipeline leveling, temporary benchmarking points should be set along the line and connected with a fixed benchmarking point with a leveling wire. The accuracy of the fixed benchmarking point should not be lower than Grade 4, and the closure of the benchmarking point is poor. : +12k (mm), k is the horizontal distance between the benchmark points, the unit is km.

(2), groove Excavation 1) When grooving in an area without groundwater, if the ditch depth does not exceed the regulations, the side slope may not be provided on the ditch wall. Filled sand and gravel soil 1m sub-sandy sub-contained soil 1.

2) When excavating trenches under the condition of no groundwater and uniform natural temperature structure in the soil, if the depth of the trench exceeds the specifications in the above table, but within 5m, the maximum allowable slope of the trench wall should meet the requirements in the following table. Soil category name Ditch side slope manually excavated and thrown the soil on the side of the ditch Mechanical digging at the bottom of the ditch digging at the bottom of the ditch Clay 1:10 1:0.75 1:10 Sub-sand 1:0.67 1:0.50 1 :0.75 Sub-stained soil 1:0.50 1:0.33 1:0.75 Soiled 1:0.33 1:0.25 1:0.67 Gravel, pebble soil 1:0.07 1:0.50 1:0.75 Peatstone, chalk soil 1:0.33 1:0.25 1:0.67 Dry loess 1:0.25 1:0.10 1:0.33 Note: ①When the workers are digging the soil away at any time, the slope of the mechanical digging can be used. ②Sand soil in the table includes fine sand and silt sand, and dry loess does not include it. ③Soil and materials should not be piled up within 0.8m from the side of the ditch. 3) When excavating trenches in the backfill section or during rainy season construction, the side slope may be enlarged as appropriate or other corresponding measures may not be required to ensure that the trench does not collapse. When constructing in areas with high groundwater level, measures to lower the water level or drainage should be taken. The choice of method should be determined according to conditions such as hydrogeological conditions and trench depth: the accumulated water in the trench should be drained in time, and the length of the trench should not be allowed. Time is stagnant. 4) The vertical wall of the trench with a depth of less than 5m can also be reinforced with appropriate support types as specified in the following table. The condition of the soil The depth of the trench (m) Supporting type of clay soil with natural moisture, with very little groundwater 3 Disconnected clay soil with natural moisture support, with little groundwater 3.5 Continuous support for loose and high-humidity soil, with a lot of groundwater And there is a danger of taking away soil particles. If the groundwater reduction method is not adopted, it can be supported by slab pillars.
5) The width of the grooved bottom of the pipe should not be less than 0.5m outside the pipe, and the total width should not be less than 0.7m. 6) When excavating trenches, the undisturbed soil with a design elevation of +0.3-0.3 m at the bottom of the trench should be retained, disturbances are prohibited, and manual cleaning before laying pipes, but it is generally not advisable to dig below the design elevation of the trench bottom, such as local over-excavation , It needs to be filled with sand or qualified original soil and compacted in layers, and the bottom of the final trench is required to be flat, dense and free of hard substances.

① When the groove is rock, it should be removed to no less than 0.15m below the design elevation, and the excavated part should be backfilled with fine sand or fine soil, and the thickness should not be less than 0.15m; when the original soil is salt, it should be laid with fine sand or Fine soil.

②When the soil quality of the bottom of the trench is extremely poor, the trench can be dug deeper, and then fill the bottom of the deep pipe with sand and submerge it with water and then remove the water (water flooding method), so that the bottom of the pipe has sufficient support force.

③For areas that may cause uneven settlement of the pipeline, the foundation should be treated and other anti-settlement measures can be taken.

7) Drinking water pipelines are strictly prohibited to pass directly through pits, toilets and graves that can cause pollution. If such situations are discovered during trench excavation, they should be dealt with in coordination with relevant departments such as design and sanitation.

3) Backfilling

1) Backfilling after installation and laying of the pipeline. The time for backfilling should be at the lowest temperature in a day and night. The backfill soil on both sides of the pipeline and within 0.5m above the pipe top shall not contain gravel, bricks, or frozen soil. Blocks and other miscellaneous hard objects.

2) The backfill should be compacted in layers. The height of the backfill should be 0.1~0.15m. First, use fine sand or fine soil to backfill both sides of the pipe. After manual compaction, backfill the second layer until it reaches 0.5m above the top of the pipe. The support of the trough should be removed in the order of backfilling under the condition of ensuring construction safety. After the vertical slab is removed, the gap should be filled with sand.

3) Before the pipeline or pressure test, the height of the backfill soil above the top of the pipe should not be less than 0.5m, and the pipe joint cannot be backfilled within 0.2m, so as to observe the accident situation during the pressure test.

4) Large-area backfilling after the pipeline has passed the pressure test should be carried out when the pipeline is full of water. After the pipeline is laid, it is not advisable to stay in the empty pipe state for a long time. A small amount of stones with a diameter of not more than 0.1m are allowed in the backfill above 0.5m from the top of the pipe. When using mechanical backfilling, backfill from both sides of the pipe at the same time, and the machine must not drive over the pipe.

5) The depth of the backfill should be checked in layers, and the density of each part of the trench should meet the following requirements:

①The chest cavity should be filled with 90% soil. 95% of the trenches and 90% of the cultivated land
