Description Chapters Extended Information

The guidelines in this book are a must have reference for assisting in the design, specification and construction of trenchless projects. Focuses on three major aspects of trenchless technology:

1. Rehabilitation of existing pipelines using:

  • Cured-in-place pipe (CIPP)
  • Fold-and Formed pipe (FFP)
  • Deformed-Reformed Pipe (DRP) methods

2. Installation of pipelines using:

  • Mini-horizontal directional drilling (mini-HDD)
  • Microtunneling

3. Replacement of pipelines using:

  • Pipe bursting and similar techniques.

A set of case studies is also included that illustrate the application of trenchless methods in practice and the benefits their use provides.

These guidelines are based primarily on the results of extensive laboratory and field investigations both in the CPAR Project that preceded the earlier guidelines and in a research study on the effect of pipe bursting on nearby utilities, pavement and structures. They are also based on state-of-the-art reviews, interviews with industry experts, and studies of case histories. The information in this manual is presented in a format patterned after Corps of Engineers Guide Specifications, but with more detailed information.

These guidelines are intended to help in the process of designing and specifying projects using trenchless technology. The focus is on equipment, materials, processes, applications and potential difficulties. This book makes it relatively easy to develop project specifications and provides end users an understanding of issues to be considered and resources that are available.

Contractors may also benefit from the development of more uniform, carefully conceived designs, plans and specifications, developed from a rational set of guidelines that are based on sound engineering principles and supported by successful experience.
