Kurzbeschreibung

Das einzigartig umfassende Kompendium von Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Dietrich Stein "Grabenloser Leitungsbau", welches in der Fachwelt vielbeachtet und hochgeschätzt ist, wurde für den internationalen Markt in die englische Sprache übersetzt und ist im September 2005 unter dem Titel "Trenchless Technology for Installation of Cables and Pipelines" im Eigenverlag Stein & Partner erschienen.

Gegenüber der im Jahre 2003 erschienenen deutschen Version wurde ein Großteil der Bilder gegen eigens hierfür von der Firma visaplan GmbH, Bochum, erstellte Illustrationen ausgetauscht.

Die englische Version ist als zweibändiges Werk geplant. Es stellt eine gekürzte Fassung des deutschen Originals dar. Im nun erschienenen, englischsprachigen Band 1 entfallen auf Grund ihres starken nationalen Bezugs sowie aus Umfangsgründen die Kapitel 17 "Ausschreibung und Vergabehinweise" und 18 "Wirtschaftlichkeitsbetrachtungen". Das Kapitel 16 "Spülbohrverfahren" (HDD) soll als eigener, überarbeiteter und aktualisierter Band 2 im Jahr 2006 unter dem Titel "Trenchless Technology for Installation of Cables and Pipelines - 2nd Volume: Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD)" erscheinen.

Bei der Übersetzung dieses umfangreichen Standardwerkes legte die Redaktion insbesondere darauf Wert, nur solche Fachbegriffe des grabenlosen Leitungsbaus zu verwenden, die dem internationalen Standard entsprechen, um somit die Verständlichkeit der vielfältigen Sachverhalte zu gewährleisten. Die englische Übersetzung wurde von Raymond Sterling, Professor des Trenchless Technology Center (TTC) an der Louisiana Tech University, USA, redigiert.

Rezension

In any developing field of technology, the emergence of high quality reference books is to be warmly welcomed ...

A review by Raymond Sterling, Trenchless Technology Center, Louisiana Tech University and Dr. Stein has a strong track record of producing in-depth handbooks on the subject of pipelines and trenchless techniques. Following previous books on microtunneling, common utility tunnels and the rehabilitation of drains and sewers, Dr. Stein has turned his attention to a major work on the installation methods for pipelines and cables. The book is a painstakingly assembled and important reference book with exceptional depth of coverage. Its scope extends beyond descriptions of installation methods to outlines of the planning for major utility systems, and detailed information on topics important to installation techniques such as geotechnical engineering and the selection and control of fluid/mud systems.

There is material in this book that will be useful to all fields involved with the provision of underground utility systems - engineering consultants, researchers, construction managers, utility owners, etc. It covers piping networks and their typical configurations and layout, geotechnical fundamentals and investigations, non-steerable and steerable moling techniques, pipe jacking and microtunnelling approaches, the design and utilization of fluid systems for ground control and lubrication, steering techniques, measurement and control techniques, shaft design, piping materials and joint design. Directional drilling is not treated in depth in this book due to space limitations but is intended to appear as a separate volume in the near future.

The level of detail in its contents makes it an exceptionally valuable reference book and the years of collection of information is clearly evident. The illustrations are generally of very high quality and greatly assist in the understanding of the equipment techniques and design principles used. For the designer and researcher, Dr. Stein has assembled many hard-to-find design and analysis techniques for such topics as the design of the pressure transfer rings for pipe jacking joints as well as more standard design tasks such as the design of shafts. The book is based primarily on German experience and European standards but a wide range of international literature and standards have been consulted and are referenced. The book also describes variations on equipment and techniques in various countries around the world.

Professor Stein has had a long and distinguished career as an engineering researcher and teacher, a consultant on a wide variety of projects related to underground utilities, and a member of national and international organizations in the field. He has been one of the leading figures in the development of trenchless technology worldwide and has served as Vice President of the International Society for Trenchless Technology. This book passes on to its readers the understanding of trenchless methods, the approaches to successful projects, and the reference information assembled during a lifetime of work. It is an authoritative work and one that should be an essential reference work for the wide range of professionals that have a connection to, or responsibility for, the planning, design and installation of pipelines and cables.

Dr. Ray Sterling is the Contractors' Educational Trust Fund Professor of Civil Engineering and the Director of the Trenchless Technology Center (TTC) at Louisiana Tech University.
He is past Chairman of the North American Society for Trenchless Technology (NASTT) and the current Chairman of the International Society of Trenchless Technology (ISTT).
