The ever-increasing urbanization has not only changed our landscape and living condition, but has also placed a growing demand on the infrastructure needed to support it. As a result, a great deal of attention has been placed on developing technologies capable of operating in these increasingly complex environments. In the field of underground pipe installation, horizontal directional drilling (HDD) has become an essential resource.
Developed from the directional and deep drilling technologies, HDD is the ideal steerable drilling method for the trenchless installation of pipes and cables. Utility and communication providers swear by the benefits of HDD technology because of its capability to provide them with numerous customized solutions for virtually any problem. Because of its many applications, it is necessary to systematically capture and outline the full range of the HDD technology, so that it can be effectively communicated to the engineers and decision makers of today and tomorrow.
This book "Trenchless Technology for Installation of Cables and Pipelines - 2ndVolume: Horizontal Directional Drilling" is extensively devoted to this particular issue. Developed by the pipeline design specialists at S & P Consult GmbH in Bochum Germany, the book covers and highlights every detail of the HDD process. This comprehensive reference book is regarded as the absolute standard within the industry, and is thus a valuable guidance and decision making tool.
