Prepared by the Pipe Bursting Task Force of the Committee on Trenchless Installation of Pipelines of the Pipeline Division of ASCE
Pipe bursting is a well-established method widely used for trenchless replacement of existing pipe with new pipe of equal or greater diameter. This manual provides the best and latest practices for the design and construction of pipelines using pipe bursting methods, with a special focus on building pipelines under roads, railroads, and streets. This new manual will be useful for new and experienced engineers as it covers both introductory and advanced topics, including history, recent innovations, documentation, typical applications, and terminology from the planning through construction phases. Utility owners, contractors, and any other professionals involved in pipeline construction will also benefit.
