Abstract: The rapid growth of pipe jacking over the last 20 years and the improvement and development of methods in terms of lengths of drive, size and ability to work in varying ground conditions has been such that pipe jacking has become a fully accepted tunneling method which is often the first choice of many authorities and contractors rather than an alternative. This paper relates to the development and application of pipe jacking techniques for the construction of bridge foundations, abutments, tunnels and culverts. Brief case histories of certain projects are given which demonstrate the main techniques. Refs.
