The field of underground pipeline engineering has undergone a rapid growth during the last two decades. The analysis, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of underground pipelines have seen several developments, and new materials have entered the underground pipeline industry. The papers included in this book cover the following topics: Metal pipe-soil interaction; installation of clay pipes; concrete pipes for sewers and watermains; new design concepts for metal pipes; design and long term performance of thermoplastic pipe materials; general considerations in pipeline design; design and performance of fiber reinforced plastic pipes; pipeline backfill design and installation; durability of rigid sewer pipes; and design and testing of concrete pipes.

Subject Headings: Concrete pipes | Plastic pipes | Pipe materials | Soil-pipe interaction | Pipeline materials | Rigid pipes | Buried pipes | Pipeline design
