Standard Construction Guidelines for Microtunneling Book Review:

This Standard Guideline covers the planning, design, pipe materials, and construction of microtunneling. Microtunneling is defined as a trenchless construction method for installing pipelines. The North American definition of microtunneling describes a method and does not impose size limitations on that method. The tunnel may be considered a microtunnel if all of the following features apply to construction: the microtunneling boring machine is remote controlled, a laser guidance system is employed, a jacking system is used for thrust, and continuous pressure is provided to the face of the excavation to balance groundwater and earth pressures. This Standard Guideline is a vital reference for owners, engineers, contractors, and construction managers.

Standard Design and Construction Guidelines for Microtunneling Book Review:

The use of microtunneling has become a widely accepted means of pipeline construction, and this standard takes into account advances in technology and construction practice developed over the past 15 years. This new edition of Standard 36 expands and modifies the earlier standard so that users can better understand both the key concepts and technical details involved in a microtunneling project. The section on preparing contract documents, particularly drawings, technical specifications, and contractual specifications, has been thoroughly updated.

Bentonite Handbook Book Review:

Pipe jacking is a construction process for the no-dig laying of pipes. Successful pipe jacking demands low skin friction between the ground and the jacked pipe. This is achieved with bentonite lubrication. The bentonite slurry fed into the annular gap fulfils several purposes. It stabilises the annular gap by supporting the surrounding ground and reduces friction contact between ground and jacked pipe. The Bentonite Handbook deals comprehensibly with the relevant aspects of annular gap lubrication: starting with the ground conditions, which are of decisive importance for lubrication, through the rheological properties of the bentonite slurry to the technical components of lubrication technology and lubrication strategy. The use of standardised measuring apparatus is described as well as mixing equipment and the automatic lubrication system. Overview tables with calculations and suggested values for bentonite consumption quantities depending on the prevailing ground conditions and the pipe jacking parameters complete the recommendations.

Specification Framework for Communication Utilities and Estimation of Utility Adjustment Costs Book Review:

This report is a follow up to the 0-4998-1 and 0-4998-2 reports. It describes a prototype framework of specification requirements and corresponding unit cost work items for communication utilities. The requirements for each specification include a summary table outlining the main characteristics of the proposed specification and provide a listing of bid items, subsidiary items, and units of measurement, followed by a list of specification requirements. This report also summarizes a methodology to develop utility adjustment cost estimates during the early stages of the project development process and a procedure for estimating the uncertainty and likelihood of exceedance of those estimates.

Introduction to Tunnel Construction Book Review:

Tunnelling provides a robust solution to a variety of engineering challenges. It is a complex process, which requires a firm understanding of the ground conditions as well as the importance of ground-structure interaction. This book covers the full range of areas related to tunnel construction required to embark upon a career in tunnelling. It also includes a number of case studies related to real tunnel projects, to demonstrate how the theory applies in practice. New features of this second edition include: the introduction of a case study related to Crossrail’s project in London, focussing on the Whitechapel and Liverpool Street station tunnels and including considerations of building tunnels in a congested urban area; and further information on recent developments in tunnel boring machines, including further examples of all the different types of machine as well as multi-mode machines. The coverage includes: Both hard-rock and soft-ground conditions Site investigation, parameter selection, and design considerations Methods of improving the stability of the ground and lining techniques Descriptions of the various main tunnelling techniques Health and safety considerations Monitoring of tunnels during construction Description of the latest tunnel boring machines Case studies with real examples, including Crossrail’s project in London Clear, concise, and heavily illustrated, this is a vital text for final-year undergraduate and MSc students and an invaluable starting point for young professionals and novices in tunnelling.
