The complete guide to trenchless technology project management, planning, costs, and methods Written by an expert in the field of pipeline system engineering, this book describes how to plan, schedule, and implement efficient, cost-effective trenchless technology piping projects. Filled with detailed illustrations and real-world examples, Trenchless Technology: Planning, Equipment, and Methods explains how to accurately compare the costs of trenchless projects,considering geotechnical and rock mass impacts, drilling fluids, and locating and tracking equipment. This in-depth reference provides important information on how to estimate the cost of labor and equipment and schedule trenchless piping projects. A wide range of trenchless technology methods suitable for various groundand project conditions are discussed in this practical resource. Coverage includes: Cost comparison of trenchless technology methods Planning for trenchless technology projects Project delivery methods Geotechnical considerations Rock mass properties impacts on trenchless project feasibility Tracking, locating, and planning tools for horizontaldirectional drilling Drilling and lubricating fluids Planning and construction requirements for horizontaldirection drilling Horizontal auger boring Pipe ramming Microtunneling methods Pilot tube (or pilot tube microtunneling) method Pipe/box jacking and utility tunneling Cured-in-place-pipe method Sliplining Lateral renewal Localized repair Planning and construction requirements for pipe bursting Panel linings Spray-in-place pipe
