Description Chapters Extended Information

Efficient networks of pipelines and cables that provide a secure supply of water, gas, district heating, electricity and telecommunication as well as ecologically friendly and secure drain and sewer system, i.e. collection and discharge of waste water is a necessary precondition for the functionality of a community and urban development.

This book comprehensively explains the wide range of trenchless techniques. In the presentation of each method, besides the description of methods of operation and sequence as well as equipment, value was placed especially on the areas of application and limitations of use according to the latest knowledge.

Trenchless installation of cables and pipelines has achieved a very high level of technology due to the constant further development of machine and method technology and this makes possible the installation of almost all types of supply and disposal lines (utilities) independent of their nominal size or their external diameter or the geological and hydrogeological limiting conditions in an ecologically friendly and enclosed method of underground construction.

Back Cover

Today the method of trenchless installation makes it possible to install cables and pipes for a safe supply of water, gas, district heating, electricity and telecommunication and for the ecological disposal of wastewater, irrespective of pipe diameter or the geological or hydro-geological limiting conditions.

The aim of this book is to provide those persons and companies involved with the planning and execution of the trenchless method of line installations with well founded and up-to-date information.

In addition, the comprehensive and detailed discussions of the construction methods and all associated fields permit an optimal economical and technical choice of the techniques to be made with reference to the numerous system-dependent limiting conditions.
