Prepared by the Center for Underground Infrastructure Research and Education, Michigan State University. Sponsored by the Horizontal Auger Boring Task Force of the Committee on Trenchless Installation of Pipelines of the Pipeline Division of ASCE.

Horizontal auger boring methods are among the most cost-effective and versatile techniques for installing steel casing pipe under roads and highways. This comprehensive manual covers the horizontal auger boring method, providing the instructions for a safe, productive, and efficient installation of pipelines for road crossings. The manual is divided into five sections; the first section is an introduction that includes history, recent innovations, applicable documents, typical applications, and a glossary of terms. The proceeding sections provide important information on the planning, design, pre-construction phase, and construction phases of the horizontal auger boring methods. The last section includes a list of references.

New and experienced engineers, utility contractors, and other professionals working in pipeline construction will find this manual useful by providing introductory and advanced topics for safe, cost-effective, and productive design and construction of horizontal auger boring projects.
