Apr 12, 2013
Dr. Mohammad Najafi, P.E, F. ASCE, director of the Center for Underground Infrastructure Research and Education (CUIRE) and director of Construction Engineering and Management at the Department of Civil Engineering at The University of Texas at Arlington, has published a new book in trenchless technology titled “Trenchless Technology: Planning, Equipment and Methods.”
Published by McGraw-Hill (ISBN:0071762450/9780071762458) and written by an expert in the field of pipeline system engineering, this 608-page book (available in electronic and book text) describes how to plan, schedule, and implement efficient, cost-effective trenchless technology piping projects. Filled with detailed illustrations and real-world examples, the book explains how to accurately compare the costs of trenchless projects, considering geotechnical and rock mass impacts, drilling fluids, and locating and tracking equipment.
This in-depth reference provides important information on how to estimate the cost of labor and equipment and schedule trenchless piping projects. A wide range of trenchless technology methods suitable for various ground and project conditions are discussed in this practical resource.
