Trenchless technology is an essential technology, capable of installing or restoring utility lines belowground, with a minimum of surface disruption. Dr. Najafi is one of the outstanding experts in this field and has dedicated himself to educating the construction industry, as well as local governments, to the benefits of this construction method. "Trenchless Technology -- Planning, Equipment, and Methods" is the latest in a series of references by Dr. Najafi to help support this technology, thereby helping ensure its successful application. This latest book focuses on the proper planning, without which the projects are unlikely to succeed. The book is highly recommended for engineers, teachers, interested students, inspectors, and relevant government officials.
