Abstract: These guidelines mark the completion of the Construction Productivity Advancement Research (CPAR) project "Trenchless Construction: Evaluation of Methods and Materials to Install and Rehabilitate Underground Utilities." CPAR is a cost-shared U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and construction industry research program. This 3-year project was conducted by the U.S. Army Engineer Watetways Experiment Station and the Trenchless Technology Center at Louisiana Tech University. The overall objective of this study was to develop guidelines that owners, engineers, and contractors could use to evaluate and select appropriate trenchless methods and equipment for their project requirements and site conditions. The guidelines focus on the three major elements of trenchless technology investigated in this study: rehabilitation of existing pipelines using cured-in-place (CIPP) and fold-and-formed pipe (FFP) methods, installation of small-diameter (2- to 10-in.) pipe lines using mini-horizontal directional drilling (mini-HDD) and installation of larger diameter pipelines using microtunneling. The guidelines are based primarily on the results of extensive laboratory and field investigations. These guidelines are intended to help those who are relatively new to the process of designing and specifying projects using trenchless technology, and they are informative rather than prescriptive. The focus is on the equipment, materials, processes, applications, and potential difficulties. From these guidelines, the user should obtain an understanding of issues that should be considered and resources that are available for assisting in the design, specification, and construction of trenchless projects.
