3.7 REFERENCE ELEVATION MONUMENTS


A. Temporary Bench Marks
1. Temporary bench marks will be installed by SRR and will be set in strategic
locations (as determined by the STR) adjacent to the work area after general site
preparation is complete. The bench marks will be similar to those used by the
United States Geological Survey (USGS) with the bench mark component
location indicator number (provided by SRR) punched on brass caps embedded
in concrete. The base datum Mean Sea Level (MSL) will be indicated on the
bench marks.
2. The elevation of the temporary bench marks will be set from the nearest bench
mark established by the National Geodetic Society (NGS), USGS, or other
nationally acceptable surveying standards or agencies.
3. All temporary bench marks shall be protected from damage.
4. Temporary bench marks shall be checked against the NGS, USGS, or SRS
accepted bench marks at 6-month intervals during construction. A complete
elevation survey closing at the starting point shall be made. The maximum
permissible error shall be ± 0.013 ft distance in miles (First order Class I
leveling, Ref. 1.3.C.2 )
3.8 SETTLEMENT, HEAVE AND MUD MAT MARKERS
A. Settlement, heave and mud mat markers are elevation references placed on major
structural elements such as columns, walls, chimneys, foundations, or foundation soils.
B. Three types of settlement markers will be used:
1. Heave marker: Heave marker will be a Borros anchor or equivalent installed per
Manufacturer’s instructions.
a. Installation by SRR and monitored by Subcontractor.
2. Mud mat marker: Each mud mat marker shall consist of a 9/16” diameter 3 feet
long stainless steel rod monument with a cone-shaped point, a 3/4” bronze
domed cap (Bernsten No. RBS325BR or equal), a 6-inch long 6-inch diameter
schedule 40 PVC pipe, and a benchmark access cover for schedule 40, 6” PVC
pipe with recessed hinge (Bernsten No. BMAC6 or equal) installed per
manufacturer’s instructions.
3. Horizontal settlement marker: Horizontal marker shall be a 3-1/2” diameter
domed bronze concrete survey marker (Bernsten No. C35DB or equal), cast-in
place during concrete placement.
4. All markers shall be identified in the field with a unique facility CLI number
supplied by SRR. CLI tags will be provided by SRR. The tags shall be affixed
adjacent to the marker for the period of time the marker is being monitored. The
only “permanent” markers will be the tank roof settlement markers. The CLI tags
for those will be epoxyed to the roof after elastomeric coating is applied.
5. Any marker that is destroyed, damaged, or becomes inaccessible shall be
replaced or relocated in the same area where possible, before the next
scheduled survey. The elevation of a replaced or relocated marker shall be tied
to that of the old marker, if possible. An adjusted initial elevation shall be
established for the new marker so that an uninterrupted settlement observation of
the marker can be maintained.

RP 12/14/09 Section 01320 Site Surveys


Saltstone Disposal Cells 3 and 5 (U) C-SPP-Z-00007
Revision: 0
Page 5 of 6

6. It may be necessary to establish temporary settlement markers for facilities under


construction, and/or relocate permanent settlement markers during construction
activities due to interferences or for ease of survey. New markers should be
installed and monitored prior to removal or relocation of the old marker to
maintain a constant settlement record. (New markers will be provided by SRR.)
NOTE: East - West locations of markers as shown on drawings C-CG-Z-00037
and C-CG-Z-00038 are approximate as horizontal location is not critical for
settlement monitoring.
3.9 FREQUENCY OF MONITORING
1. After the initial settlement (or heave) marker elevation is established, surveys
shall be scheduled at weekly intervals during construction.
3.10 RECORDING OF DATA
A. A complete set of field notes (hard copy and/or electronic files) shall be kept and
maintained for the following:
1. Descriptive location of settlement markers.
2. Records of elevation and settlement each time a survey is made.
3. Relocation of settlement markers.
4. Location and elevation of bench marks and control monuments.
B. After installing the settlement (or heave) markers, the initial elevations and date shall be
recorded as soon as possible. A complete elevation survey closing at the starting point
(i.e., control monument) shall be made and repeated the same day to establish initial
marker elevations. The maximum permissive error shall be ± 0.013 ft distance in miles
(First Order Class I Leveling, Ref. 1.3.C.2).
C. In addition to elevation data, the following information shall also be recorded for each
survey:
1. Date and time;
2. Survey crew names;
3. Equipment used (including identification numbers and calibration date);
4. Weather conditions;
5. Temperature;
6. Description of any unusual conditions or damage of a marker/monument
7. Relocation of settlement markers
8. Excavation level (if applicable, for heave measurements);
9. During placement of concrete, total weight of concrete computed per design, and
an estimate of cumulative amount of concrete placed;
10. After placement of concrete, any major equipment and commodity loads and
estimated percentage of total foundation load;
11. Current construction operations or any other unusual conditions.
D. Depending on the settlement results, a re-survey may be necessary. This will be
determined by SRR following review of settlement data.
E. Transmittal of Settlement Data and Survey Map / Drawing
1. Submit Settlement Data
a. All settlement data shall be transmitted at the recommended survey interval.

Additional HDPE Liner Installation Requirements and Allowances

Experience has shown that obtaining direct and uniform contact between the horizontal layer of
HDPE and the underlying GCL is complicated by the thermal expansion and contraction of the
large HDPE surface. For this reason, the following requirements and allowances are provided.
1) All HDPE seams shall run parallel to each other (i.e. no transverse seams) with the exception
of necessary repair locations and the circumferential perimeter seam.
2) If required, the following is offered as an acceptable means to achieve maximum uniform
contact:
a) Anchor/restrain the outer edges of the HDPE Liner to allow “tension” to be applied
uniformly across the HDPE surface.
b) When the ambient temperature is warm and the solar radiation effect on HDPE is at its
greatest, remove any slack from the restraint system.
c) HDPE shall be inspected when ambient temperature is cool and there is no solar effect
on the HDPE. Excessive waves shall be identified.
NOTE: The HDPE Liner shall be installed in direct and uniform contact with the GCL.
(e.g. Excessive waves may be defined as nominally ¾” in amplitude to a maximum height
of 1-½“. Basis: The GCL underlying the HDPE will hydrate approximately 3 to 4 times its
original thickness. This equates to approximately ¾”. It is expected that the weight of the
upper mud mat will further compress the HDPE depending on the time and conditions
during placement.
d) Tension shall be relieved, excessive waves repaired, and tension reapplied. During the
repair process, care shall be taken not to damage the underlying GCL. Overlap of the
GCL shall be verified if a repair occurs at the seam of two adjoining pieces of GCL.
e) Repeat process as necessary until HDPE surface is acceptable per visual examination by
SRR.
f) Pour upper mud mat while maintaining tension over the complete surface. Tension shall
be maintained for a minimum of 7 days following the placement of the mud mat. (Tension
should be adjusted during the pour and during the 24 hour period subsequent to the pour
to remove any slack that may develop.) It is recommended that the mud mat placement
be made at night (or the coolest part of the day) to minimize thermal effects on the HDPE.

NOTE: The number of daily thermal cycles the HDPE is allowed to experience has a tendency to
adversely affect the frequency and amplitude of developing waves. The Subcontractor
shall factor this into scheduling and sequencing of work activities to minimize these cycles
prior to placing the upper mudmat.

using the straight-edged tolerance requirements. No abrupt changes in the surface
finish are allowed.
3.5 CURING AND PROTECTION
A. Cure and protect in accordance with ACI 301, Section 5.3.6.
NOTE: Minimization or elimination of surface cracking is a key concern during the
construction of the tanks.
Plastic shrinkage cracking is usually associated with the rapid loss of moisture
caused by a combination of factors that include high air and concrete
temperatures, low relative humidity, and high wind velocity at the surface of the
concrete. Concrete with lower amounts of bleed water, such as those containing
mineral admixtures (especially silica fume) have a greater tendency to undergo
plastic shrinkage cracking than concrete with a greater tendency to bleed.
Because plastic shrinkage cracking is due to a differential volume change in the
plastic concrete, successful control measures require a reduction in the relative
volume change between the surface and other portions of the concrete.
Steps can be taken to prevent rapid moisture loss due to hot weather and dry
winds. These measures include the use of fog nozzles to saturate the air above
the surface and the use of plastic sheeting to cover the surface between finishing
operations. Windbreaks to reduce the wind velocity and sunshades to reduce the
surface temperature are also helpful. It is good practice to schedule flatwork after
the windbreaks have been erected. During hot, windy weather with low humidity, it
is sometimes advisable to reschedule the concrete placement or to initiate
concrete operations at night.
Any and all precautions stated here and in ACI 301 shall be considered.

Attachment 13210-B: Anchor Requirements

Drilling of Holes in Concrete

Locations of post-installed anchors shall be as shown on the Contract Drawings. The hole
diameters and depths shall be as recommended in the manufacturer’s instructions unless
otherwise specified. Subcontractor shall verify depth of the member before drilling holes. The
embedment depth of the post-installed anchor shall not exceed the greater of 2/3 of the
concrete thickness or the concrete thickness less 4 inches.

Drilling Equipment

All drilling in concrete shall be accomplished utilizing carbide tipped tools and a drill stop.
Drilling holes for post-installed anchors and rock bolts may be made with equipment specifically
recommended by the anchor manufacturer, but with carbide tipped tools and a drill stop. The
use of a diamond bit shall be permitted only when SRR has consented in writing to the cutting of
the rebar or embedded construction aids.

The use of a drill stop device is mandatory. Just before use, the drill stop device shall be tested
by touching the drill bit to a ground source to ensure it trips. The drill stop device may be
deactivated while the bit or the coring tool is in contact with a bar or embedded construction
aids approved to be cut.

Installation of Post-installed Anchors

Post-installed anchors shall be installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s specifications,


unless stated otherwise in the following sections. Anchor installers shall be trained and made
fully familiar with the manufacturer’s installation procedures including additional requirements as
noted in this document.

Post-installed anchors shall be properly seated and expanded to achieve a good "grip" in the
concrete by three to four turns of the nut, but in any case, the tightening torque shall be within
the range specified by the manufacturer. The torque shall be applied with a manually operated
torque wrench, or the anchor tensioned with a hydraulic tensioner, calibrated in accordance with
an approved site calibration procedure. The torque wrench used shall have a range so that the
tightening torque value is near the middle range of the wrench. Where no range for the torque is
specified, the specified torque shall be the minimum value for the torque wrench, with a
tolerance of -0%, +5%. Installation equipment shall be checked on a periodic basis, and shall
include a calibration program.

The tightening torque specified by the manufacturer corresponds to the minimum embedment
depth and/or minimum concrete strength specified by the manufacturer. Torque values for
embedment depth less than the specified minimum, or for other concrete strengths, shall be
determined by the Subcontractor.

Flat washers supplied with post-installed anchors shall be used in all cases except where
details on the Contract Drawings specify the use of another washer under the nuts. A washer
may be trimmed to clear interferences. The trimmed edge shall not be closer than 7/8 of the bolt
diameter from the center of the washer.

Attachment 13210-B: Anchor Requirements

Post-installed anchors installed within 5 degrees of perpendicular to the nominal concrete


surface are acceptable. Care shall be exercised to avoid bending anchors to match baseplate
holes, or loosening of anchors by prying sideways after tightening. Care shall also be exercised
to ensure that the cone nut of an undercut anchor does not become loose from the stud during
the setting or tensioning operation.

The center to center distance between two load bearing post-installed anchors shall not be less
than three times the embedment depth. Unless otherwise noted on the drawings, the center to
center distance between a new post-installed anchor hole and an exploratory or unused hole or
an abandoned cut-off anchor shall not be less than three times the diameter of the larger hole or
1” of clear concrete between the holes, whichever is greater. Unused holes shall be grouted
with non-shrink grout (refer to Section 03300, Attachment 03300-B). When exploratory or
unused holes are grouted with non-shrink grout and the grout has attained the strength of the
concrete, the clear distance requirement is waived.

INSPECTION AND TESTING OF CONCRETE ANCHORS

Visual Inspection

Inspection of anchors shall be performed as specified in Table 1. All anchors shall be visually
inspected and documented for correct installation. The visual inspection of drilled holes shall be
in accordance with Manufacturer’s instructions. The visual inspection of post-installed anchors
shall be documented according to Table 1 and the following:

• The projection shall be measured from the exposed end of the anchor to concrete
surface to verify embedment depth.
• If visual inspection reveals that the installed anchor does not meet the requirements of
this document, the anchor shall be relocated as permitted by this document, or shall be
removed and replaced by another anchor, or referred to SRR for evaluation.

Testing of Post-installed Anchors

The testing of post-installed anchors for permanent plant installation is mandatory. The following
two methods of testing are acceptable for post-installed anchors. One or both may be used in a
single test program. The testing of post-installed anchors may be completed prior to or after
installation of the attachment/baseplate.

Torque Method

The installed post-installed anchors shall be tested with a manually operated calibrated torque
wrench. Acceptable test torque values for anchors tested after installation shall not be less than
80% of the tightening torque as specified by the manufacturer, or project documents. Post-
installed anchors may be tested at the time of installation, by utilizing the torque values
specified by the manufacturer, or the project documents.

Attachment 13210-B: Anchor Requirements

Proof-Load Method

The installed post-installed anchors shall be tested with a tensioner using tensioning loads
specified by the manufacturer. This tensioning load corresponds to the minimum embedment
depth and/or minimum strength of concrete specified by the vendor. If the actual embedment is
smaller than the specified minimum, or the concrete strength is lower than the specified
minimum, the tensioning load needs to be adjusted, contact SRR or the Vendor.

After satisfactory installation and testing, if the attachment is removed, or the nut loosened, the
threads shall be cleaned, and the nut tightened to snug tight**. The anchor then shall be re-
tightened to the installation torque. If the torque is attained within ¼ turn, the anchor is
acceptable. If the torque is eventually achieved with more than ¼ turn, repeat the procedure
after 7 days. If at that time the installation torque is achieved within ¼ turn, the anchor is
acceptable. If not, the anchor shall be replaced.

** Snug tight may be attained by a few impacts of an impact wrench or the full effort of a man
using an ordinary spud wrench.

Testing Frequency of Post-installed Anchors

The number of test anchors shall be as per Table 1. Test anchors shall be randomly selected so
that they are representative of the anchors and installation conditions in the group in which they
are located. If the selected test anchors meet the torque/test load requirements, and the
concrete around the anchors did not break out nor did the anchors fail, the remaining anchors in
the group shall be considered satisfactory.

If one of the test anchors fails, the test percentage as shown in Table 1 shall be doubled. If
another one fails, all remaining anchors in the group shall be tested. The anchors that exhibit a
low torque value as well as the remainder of the anchors in the connection shall be re-tightened
no more than once to achieve the "torque at installation."

Documentation

The following information for installation and testing shall be verified:

• Brand, type, diameter, identification mark of anchor


• General location of anchor and group represented
• Method of test or verification
• Test results, accepted or rejected
• Inspector’s name
• Date of test
• For anchors that have failed, include location of failed anchors and type of failure

All repairs of expansion anchors and undercut anchors that have failed under test shall be in
accordance with Manufacturer’s instructions.
