Trenchless Technology Piping-Installation and Inspection




File Size: 8.04 Mb

Description
This book complements another title, Trenchless Technology: Pipeline and Utility Design, Construction, and Renewal, published by McGraw-Hill and WEF Press in 2005. The main idea for
this book came from a series of trenchless techno logy operator and inspector training schools the author has offered since 1998. The need for proper planning and partnering among owners, engineers,
and contractors in design, contract and project execution is especially critical in trenchless technology projects where many uncertainties are involved. However, development of new equipment and methods and increased level of equipment sophistication and capabilities is not a substitute for experience and training of operators and field personnel, even it has increased this need. A safe and successful trenchless project depends on skills, training, and experience of operators, field personnel, and project inspectors. The main objective of this book is to highlight some critical aspects of trenchless installation and inspection, and provide conceptual guidelines for proper execution and quality control of these projects. This book will be of use for all parties in a trenchless project as it provides planning, design and construction, inspection, and project management concepts.
