Book Reviews

Great Reference for the Pipeline Industry

This book is a great reference for new engineers and designers in the pipeline industry. Many of them come into the industry with very little knowledge about the different pipe materials, soil classification and trenching conditions. In addition, the illustrations are very helpful in communicate the information and details to the reader. I only wish that this book would have been available 15 years ago!

The Best I Have Found

This is a wonderful book. I am a pipeline engineer working with installation instructions frequently. It has great information with fun illustrations. Chapters 4 and 5 on soil density and compaction are the best I have found in any book. Chapter 15 on flowable fill is great current information that is very important as many pipelines are using flowable fill for haunch support. Easily a 5 star book!

The Authoritative Reference Handbook

As a professional in the field of buried pipes, I use “Pipeline Installation 2.0” frequently as the authoritative reference handbook to solve client issues, and to support my designs for pipe burial installation. Mr. Howard’s contribution converts theory to practice. I have given this Handbook as gifts to many of my close engineering associates and some clients, who will use it as guidance for the remainder of their careers.

A Must-Read for Anyone Involved in the Installation of Buried Pipelines

Understanding the pipe soil interface is critical to ensure success in buried pipeline installations. Amster takes a subject often viewed as complex or challenging by many and puts it into very easy to understand layman terms. Concepts are described or illustrated in a very logical step by step manner making the theory of pipe burial along with soil classification easy to understand. A must read for anyone involved in the installation of buried pipelines.
