Abstract: These proceedings include papers which cover the topics of innovative pipeline design, condition monitoring, soil-pipe interaction, inspection, maintenance, and rehabilitation. These collective papers cover the spectrum of pipeline fluid systems: oil, gas, water, sewer, and steam. Seismic design aspects for oil and gas and water and sewer pipeline systems are summarized in abstract form. A significant amount of technological development has occurred in this decade regarding both design aspects of new construction and new technologies to deal with life extension—condition monitoring—rehabilitation of our vast existing pipeline infrastructure. Choosing the correct rehabilitation mmethod or design procedure for a given problem, administering of correct construction specifications and diligent consistent inspection, all lend themselves to an acceptable constructed project. Focusing on the future, research needs that should be pursued to most economically and efficiently manage and expand the enormous pipeline infrastructure that exists today are outlined and summarized by leading professionals in the field of pipeline engineering.
