dr inż. Tomasz Abel, Wroclaw University of Science and Technology
Graduated from the Department of Civil Engineering, Wroclaw University of Science and Technology. His doctoral thesis, dedicated to the strength properties of pipelines renovated using trenchless technology, was published in 2011. Currently an assistant professor in the Department of Structural Mechanics and Municipal Engineering, Wroclaw University of Technology. He is a specialist in the use of trenchless technology in pipelines’ construction and renovation.
Author and co-author of numerous scientific and technical publications as well as expertise and construction projects in the field of underground transport infrastructure, including those implemented by the Wroclaw University of Technology and the Chief Technical Organisation. Active participant in conferences and symposia in the field of underground engineering. He cooperates with domestic and foreign construction companies.
Workshops – ABC of trenchless technologies
The aim of the workshops is to provide basic information and introduction into the wide field of trenchless construction and technical rehabilitation of pipelines. Participation in the workshop is to give the audience the ability to distinguish particular technologies, knowledge of the purpose and main conditions for their use, as well as knowledge about the basic limitations and requirements related to the preparation of implementation using these technologies (from the technical side).
Technologies of trenchless pipeline construction – classification, justification of use, areas of application, advantages and disadvantages compared to alternative solutions, basic aspects of design. Technology presentation: e.g. HDD, microtunelling, hybrid solutions, hydraulic jacks.
Technologies of trenchless technical rehabilitation of pipelines – classification, definitions, justification of application and areas of application, basic aspects of design. Technology presentation: e.g. pipe lining, sliplining, SPR, CIPP, construction chemicals, spot repairs, repairs including robots.
