The complete guide to trenchless technology project management, planning, costs, and methods

Written by an expert in the field of pipeline system engineering, this book describes how to plan, schedule, and implement efficient, cost-effective trenchless technology piping projects. Filled with detailed illustrations and real-world examples, Trenchless Technology: Planning, Equipment, and Methods explains how to accurately compare the costs of trenchless projects, considering geotechnical and rock mass impacts, drilling fluids, and locating and tracking equipment.

This in-depth reference provides important information on how to estimate the cost of labor and equipment and schedule trenchless piping projects. A wide range of trenchless technology methods suitable for various groundand project conditions are discussed in this practical resource.

Coverage includes:

  • Cost comparison of trenchless technology methods
  • Planning for trenchless technology projects
  • Project delivery methods
  • Geotechnical considerations
