Intro - New Installation Methods Good Practices Guidelines - 2018
This publication is presented by the North American Society for Trenchless Technology (NASTT), a non-profit educational organization. The published works serve as a companion document to “NASTT’s Introduction to Trenchless Technology Short Course - New Installation Methods”. This publication is intended to provide contractors, engineers, and utility owners with an overview of the many trenchless methods for the installation of new pipelines. They can also aid more experienced individuals to refresh or reacquaint themselves with these constantly evolving technologies and applications. NASTT’s Introduction to Trenchless Technology Short Course is presented in two sections: New Installations Methods and Rehabilitation Methods. A companion publication for the Rehabilitation Methods section is also available from NASTT. All NASTT publications are peer reviewed by volunteer industry professionals to ensure that they offer generic and non-commercial information. This publication was funded solely by NASTT as part of our educational outreach program. Since 1990, the all-volunteer members of NASTT have presented non-commercial information about green alternative engineering methods to North American communities and beyond. NASTT offers multiple, high-quality trenchless courses each year throughout North America and at our annual NASTT No-Dig Show Conference and Exhibition.
