Design of Submarine Pipelines Against Upheaval Buckling
This paper describes part of a comprehensive joint-industry project on upheaval buckling. It develops a semi-empirical simplified design method and detailed design methods based on a new numerical analysis,...

Construction Begins Soon on Major Pipeline in Houston

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...

Maryland Utility First In Nation to Use Zinc-Coated Iron Ductile Pipe With Special Wrapping

Purdue University Tests Use of Large Open-Ended Pipe Piles on Indiana Bridge

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...

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...

Shafts/Temporary Structures
Shafts should be of a size to accommodate the equipment and pipe selected and to allow for safe working practices. If the shaft must accommodate the permanent works, it is the contractor's...

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:...

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...

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...

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 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:...

San Antonio Hires Consortium to Deliver and Operate Lengthy Pipeline

Outfitted with Turbines, Portland Water Pipeline Generates Hydropower

Port Arthur Project Features Longest Direct Pipe Installation in North America

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...

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...
