2.1 / ASTM WK43991: Standard practice for the installation of optical fiber cables along pipelines for leak detection using distributed vibration, strain, and thermal sensing
Proposed Scope: This standard will reduce pipeline and construction industry uncertainty on the selection and use of proper materials, locations, and methods for the installation of optical fiber cables along pipelines for the purpose of leak detection and localization. This standard will provide the information needed for best-practice on design and installation techniques to support leak detection using vibration, strain, and thermal sensing with optical fiber cables near pipelines.
2.2 / ASTM WK46887: Standard practice for the use of fiber optic distributed temperature sensing to detect leaks in above-ground ammonia, ethylene and LNG pipelines
Proposed Scope: This standard will publish best practices on the selection and use of proper materials, locations, and methods for the installation, operation and maintenance of optical fiber cables for above ground pipelines transporting ammonia, ethylene, LNG and similar fluids for the purpose of leak detection using distributed temperature sensing (DTS).

2.6 / SEAFOM MSP037: Measuring Sensor Performance
This initiative is aiming to provide guidelines to aid system integrators ability to comparatively choose the best suitable distributed strain instrument needed for job/installation as well as Facilitate operator / end user to specify a minimum performance levels of strain monitoring technology for given application. The scope is limited to the testing of an instrument in conjunction with a selected fiber only. The document is including such items as definitions and testing methods for repeatability and spatial resolution; different test methods for long range vs. moderate range/high spatial resolution applications.
2.7 / ASTM WK41891: New Practice for Standard Practice for the Full-Length Monitoring of the Interface Temperature of a Cured in Place Pipe Lining Process
The proposed standard will address the equipment components required, the equipments deployment into the host pipe to be lined, and the operating procedure to be followed in order to capture the temperature of the liner during processing to confirm that the heating and cooling of the CIPP is within the system manufacturers stated processing parameters.
2.8 / ASTM WK67196: New Specification for The Full-length Monitoring of the Interface Temperature of a Cured in Place Pipe During the Curing Process
This practice describes the full length in-situ monitoring and recording of the temperatures occurring on the outside wall surface during the processing of a cured in place pipe liner used in the reconstruction (rehabilitation) of pipelines, thereby providing quality control and quality assurance information to the installer, project engineer, and owner of the pipeline or conduit. This reconstruction process is used in a variety of gravity and pressure applications such as sanitary sewers, force main sewers, storm sewers, process piping, electrical conduits, and ventilation systems. The monitoring enables a results-oriented process control so that a consistent curing can be best achieved even for difficult construction sites.
2.9 / ASTM WK62057: New Test Methods for Standard Test Methods for Performance Characteristics of Fiber-Optic Strain Gages
All types of strain-sensing mechanisms based on optical fiber technology will be considered.
Strain gages based on optical fiber technology are increasingly used in mechanics. Standard test methods for evaluating and reporting their performance characteristics do not exist. User will include both vendors of these systems, and end users, such as aerospace manufacturers, structural engineering firms, and academic researchers.
