Plastics and Sustainable Piping Systems David Chasis
Plastic piping is now the preferred material in countless applications -- municipal water and sewer lines,drain/waste/vent lines, and chemical waste drainage, to mention just a few -- because plastics are durable, easy and safe to install, environmentally sound, and cost-effective. This compendium of over 40 articles is written by a professional involved in plastic fluid handling products for over 45 years. Divided into three general areas, this unique resource promotes the use of plastics in general and plastic piping systems, in particular. The articles include listings of the major advantages of plastics plus descriptions of the many varied piping products and markets served by thermoplastic piping systems. It is certain to be an eye-opener and educational tool for the experienced and novice designing and specifying engineer, installer, end-user, code official, purchasing agent, and engineering student.

Horizontal Auger Boring Projects ASCE MOP No. 106
Prepared by the Center for Underground Infrastructure Research and Education, Michigan State University. Sponsored by the Horizontal Auger Boring Task Force of the Committee on Trenchless Installation of Pipelines of the Pipeline Division of ASCE.


Horizontal auger boring methods are among the most cost-effective and versatile techniques for installing steel casing pipe under roads and highways. This comprehensive manual covers the horizontal auger boring method, providing the instructions for a safe, productive, and efficient installation of pipelines for road crossings. The manual is divided into five sections; the first section is an introduction that includes history, recent innovations, applicable documents, typical applications, and a glossary of terms. The proceeding sections provide important information on the planning, design, pre-construction phase, and construction phases of the horizontal auger boring methods. The last section includes a list of references.

New and experienced engineers, utility contractors, and other professionals working in pipeline construction will find this manual useful by providing introductory and advanced topics for safe, cost-effective, and productive design and construction of horizontal auger boring projects.

Project Administration for Design-Build Contracts: A Primer for Owners, Engineers, and Contractors
Explains the basics of administering a design-build project after the contract has been awarded. This book begins with an introduction to design-build project administration and goes on to cover topics such as scheduling, design administration, and design quality management. The authors examine construction topics including quality management, change orders, progress payments, and close-out. This practical guide provides case studies, often drawn from the authors' own experiences.

This book is a resource for owners, engineers, construction contractors, and architects who find themselves in need of guidance in administering a design-build project. It will assist those professionals who actually do the designing, the building, and the contract administration. It organizes the options so that the advantages and disadvantages are highlighted, providing the user the necessary information to make sound business decisions.

Preparing for Design-Build Projects: A Primer for Owners, Engineers, and Contractors ASCE Douglas Granberg James Koch Keith Molenaar
For nearly two decades, design-build (DB) contracting has become increasingly the method of choice in public and private construction projects. Many designers and builders are now drawn to design-build projects and must alter their business practices to accommodate the changed relationships within DB contracts.

Preparing for Design-Build Projects: A Primer for Owners, Engineers, and Contractors is a professional reference that covers the basics of developing a design-build project. The authors focus on learning modules that break down the decision-making process and reassemble it as a straightforward method for DB projects from the owner's standpoint. This book acts as a timely guide on developing DB requests for qualification and requests for proposals. It also assists the reader in interpreting these documents in order to prepare a responsive DB proposal or to evaluate a series of proposals and make a source selection decision.
Pipeline Design for Installation by Horizontal Directional Drilling, 2nd Edition
Our Price: $64.99
Pipeline Design for Installation by Horizontal Directional Drilling, 2nd Edition
This new edition captures advances in drilling equipment, improvements for tracking, and considerations for using alternative pipe materials. MOP 108 is a guide for design engineers who have previous experience and knowledge of the HDD installation process and pipeline design methods. This Manual of Practice addresses the design of major pipeline or duct segments to be installed by horizontal directional drilling (HDD). HDD is a trenchless excavation method that is accomplished in three phases and uses a specialized horizontal drilling rig with ancillary tools and equipment.
