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!

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.

Mike Whitehouse

Necessary for You and Your Library

Amster Howard’s Pipeline Installation 2.0 culminates more than 50 years of research, seminars, writings and field applications in an easy to read, learn and apply book. Each chapter contains a 3-second summary and a full summary; also, many chapters include an inspection checklist.

The book contains valuable design, construction and inspection information on rigid and flexible pipes, soil classification and compaction, trench excavation, bedding, embedment, backfill, flowable fill, and many other important topics. The book emphasizes the importance for construction methods to be consistent with the design methods.

If you are a pipeline designer, contractor, inspector or a student, this book is necessary for you and for your library.

Camille George Rubeiz, PE, Director of Engineering

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.
