Installation Technology for Maximum Benefit


De Rosa, Lane

Workshop # 1998 Gothenburg

The systems reviewed below refer predominantly to the use of PE pipe, as this is the material of choice for many of the applications described. Recent developments in other pipeline materials have introduced the possibility of using alternatives to PE in these applications where there is a cost-benefit of doing so. For a more comprehensive introduction to pipeline installation technology, the reader is referred to the excellent iSTTlWRc Trenchless Technology Database CD-ROM, and the iSTT Trenchless Technology guidelines publication.
