Abstract:

The proceedings, Trenchless Pipeline Projects - Practical Applications, consists of papers presented at the International Conference sponsored by the Pipeline Division of the American Society of Civil Engineers and held in Boston, Massachusetts on June 8-11, 1997. The papers explore topics from over 50 presentations at the conference covering such areas as case histories; microtunnelling; sliplining; pipe jacking; pipe rehabilitation; service laterals; manholes; inspection/evaluation methods; grouting/joint seals; gas pipelines; materials research; new construction; and the future of trenchless technology. Trenchless pipeline technologies are experiencing rapid and dramatic changes. This book provides a great opportunity to learn from the actual on-site experiences from leading experts in the field who describe recent and current projects, the challenges that had to be overcome, and the solutions used. Also presented are the technologies and methodologies being used today - as well as those that will be emerging in the years ahead.
