Improving Cost and Schedule Performance on Municipal Pipeline Projects: Realizing the Benefits of the Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR) Alternative Project Delivery Method
The water and wastewater infrastructure in the United States is failing. In its 2013 Report Card on American Infrastructure, ASCE stated: "The water and wastewater...

Scope
This standard guideline covers planning, design, pipe materials, and construction of microtunneling. The term microtunneling is defined as a trenchless construction method for installing...

Project Layout
Microtunneling projects should be laid out with attention to the benefits and constraints unique to this construction process. The following recommendations address some of these concerns:...

Microtunneling Design Elements
The design elements and the process for a microtunneling project are generally the same as for other underground projects. Design elements include the following: General conditions; Special...

Shaft Considerations
Jacking and receiving shaft locations should be selected to minimize the number of shafts and disruptions while not exceeding the practical limits of the drive lengths achievable for a...

Pipe Characteristics
Microtunneling pipe should meet the following general requirements: Circular shape with a flush outside surface (including at the joints); Strength sufficient to withstand both the installation...

Pipe Design
The pipes and joints, once installed, must be capable of safely withstanding, for the project design life, all in-use service loads, including those associated with the following factors:...

Field Aspects
As soon as practical after their arrival at the project site, all pipes, fittings, and appurtenances should be thoroughly checked for compliance with the contract documents and accepted...

Performance Limits for Deepwater Pipelines
This paper highlights the differences between onshore and offshore pipeline design. It then summarizes the results of combined external pressure, tension, and bending testing on full scale...

Axial Load Capacity of Pipe Piles in Sands
The axial load capacity of driven, open-ended, steel pipe piles in cohesionless soils, is often estimated using a method such as the American Petroleum Institute Recommended Practice 2A...

Behaviour of Open-Ended Pipe Piles in Sand During Installation and Loading
An experimental study was performed to investigate the physical processes which influence the axial load capacities of open-ended steel pipe piles in sand. A double-walled pipe pile was...

Design and Installation of Auger Steel Catenary Risers
The Auger export pipelines are connected to the TLP by steel catenary risers (SCRs). This is believed to be the first time steel pipe has been used for catenary risers. SCRs offer advantages...

Enhanced Detection and Mapping of Buried Utilities—A Sustainability Perspective
The social and environmental impacts and benefits of projects make up the triple bottom line that represents a modern view of sustainable project development. Rather than considering only...

Sinkhole Investigation and Grouting: Novel Recommendations for a Pipeline Right-of-Way
In 2009, numerous sinkholes developed within and adjacent to a 400-ft-long section of high-pressure, petroleum pipeline right-of-way that crosses under a local creek in Plymouth Meeting,...

The Measurement of Wave Heights by Means of a Float in an Open-End Pipe

Existing Sewer Evaluation and Rehabilitation
Fully revised and updated, this authoritative volume offers the most comprehensive information available on maintenance, repair, rehabilitation, and replacement of existing sewers. This...

Fast-Track Repairs of Critical Levee Erosion Sites

Cleaning and Inspection
This chapter discusses the cleaning and inspection of culverts and storm sewers....

Discussion of Time for Development of Internal Erosion and Piping in Embankment Dams by Robin Fell, Chi Fai Wan, John Cyganiewicz, and Mark Foster
(Originally published in J. of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering, 2004, 130(9), 980-981.)...

2008 Civil Engineering Industry Buyer' Guide
A Special Supplement to Civil Engineering Magazine
This guide covers the following topics: Construction materials; Geotechnical and environmental; Information technology; Pipelines, sewers, and accessories; Professional and professional...
