Main description

Design, Install, Inspect, and Manage Trenchless Technology Piping Projects

Trenchless Technology Piping offers comprehensive coverage of pipe installation, renewal, and replacement using trenchless technology methods. This step-by-step resource explains how to implement efficient design, construction, and inspection processes and shows how to save time and money with a state-of-the-art project management system.

Packed with detailed illustrations, the book surveys the wide variety of trenchless technologies available and discusses the recommended applications for each. This cutting-edge engineering tool also contains vital information on contracting, project delivery, safety, quality control, and quality assurance.


  • Trenchless technology methods for new pipe installations and old pipe linings and replacements
  • Pipeline planning and design
  • Pipe behavior under soil and traffic loads
  • Details on different types of pipes, such as concrete, plastic, PVC, HDPE, GRP, and metallic
  • Design and project management considerations for horizontal directional drilling (HDD)
