Trenchless Technology: Pipeline and Utility Design, Construction, and Renewal

by: Mohammad Najafi, Ph.D., P.E.


Abstract: Trenchless technology allows for the installation or renewal of underground utility systems with minimum disruption of the surface. As water and wastewater systems age or must be redesigned in order to comply with environmental regulations, the demand for this technology has dramatically increased. This is a detailed reference covering construction details, design guidelines, environmental concerns, and the latest advances in equipment, methods, and materials.
