Pipeline Installation 2.0 is a 640 page, hard-cover book that emphasizes the geotechnical aspects of water, wastewater, stormwater, and irrigation pipe installations.


Pipeline Installation 2.0 covers the fundamentals of pipe-soil interaction as related to the construction of a buried pipeline. All types of pipe are discussed. From unloading the pipe at the construction site to final testing for acceptance, each step in the installation sequence is reviewed in detail.

Proper selection of soil type and compaction level for the soil support system for both rigid and flexible pipe is discussed, along with the appropriate soil testing requirements and standards. Inspection check lists are included throughout the book for use by on-site inspectors as a guide for proper installation procedures.


A buried pipe is a soil-pipe interaction problem. The solution is the best combination of pipe strength and soil support that results in an efficient, economical, and enduring pipeline. Then, the pipeline must be constructed as designed to be successful. This book promotes proper installation practices.
