Proceedings of the International Conference on Pipelines and Trenchless Technology (ICPTT), held in Beijing,China, October 26-29, 2011. Sponsored by the Pipeline Division of ASCE; China-U.S. Joint Center for Trenchless R&D of China University of Geosciences; Center for Underground Infrastructure Research and Education of the University of Texas at Arlington; School of Engineering of China University of Geosciences, Beijing; Soil & Rock Drilling and Protecting Engineering Research Center of China Ministry of Education; China Petroleum Pipeline Bureau; and Wuhan Deawon Trenchless Technology Co. Ltd.
This collection contains 253 papers exploring all aspects of pipelines and trenchless technology with a global perspective. Papers examine piplines from many angles, including design, failures, inspection, installation, planning, rehabilitation, and risk management. Other topics include:
- condition assessment
- corrosion control and monitoring
- gas/oil and water quality regulations
- geographic information systems
- hazard and risk assessments
- integrated asset management
- leak detection and monitoring
- research and development
- seismic pipeline design
- subsurface utility engineering
- tunnel boring machines
This collection will be of interest to engineers working on pipelines with many different uses in a variety of geographic locations.
