Summary:
This is the first broad-based guide to the increasingly important subject of trenchless technology - the wide array of processes and techniques for digging holes and rehabilitating conduits without disturbing the ground surface. Trenchless technology has become an effective and economic alternative to open-cut construction. Cities and communities can no longer afford to disrupt traffic or disturb the public.

    schema:description "This is the first broad-based guide to the increasingly important subject of trenchless technology - the wide array of processes and techniques for digging holes and rehabilitating conduits without disturbing the ground surface. Trenchless technology has become an effective and economic alternative to open-cut construction. Cities and communities can no longer afford to disrupt traffic or disturb the public. Nor can they afford the high costs of restoration that result from traditional methods. An Introduction to Trenchless Technology provides you with a sound understanding of what this technology is, how it works, and what benefits it offers. This first-of-its-kind resource gathers information on the latest techniques and equipment used in guided boring, pipe jacking, microtunnelling, auger boring, horizontal directional drilling, on-line replacement, and renovation. Clear guidelines not only help you decide how and where to apply trenchless methods, but also demonstrate the strong economic advantages they offer. The book's unique classification system and easy-to-understand descriptions explain each method in detail. Also, a special chapter on job planning shows you critical factors to evaluate when using the technology. Throughout the book, case histories offer valuable insights on how trenchless technologies actually work."@en ;
