The management of rights-of-way by electric and telephone utilities, highway departments, gas pipeline companies, and railroads around the world is guided and constrained by policies and regulations to protect the environment. Companies that manage rights-of-way are required to comply with these regulations, and are seeking the most cost-effective management practices that, at the same time, demonstrate stewardship of the environment. Protection of biodiversity and sustainable development are especially important as national goals in many countries, and rights-of-way managers are seeking practical ways to include public participation in their operations. * Addresses environmental issues in rights-of-way planning and management * Provides a forum for information exchange among various agencies, industries, environmental consultants, and academic organizations * Presents peer-reviewed papers to help achieve a better understanding of current environmental issues involved in rights-of-way management

A practical reference for all plastics engineers who are seeking to answer a question, solve a problem, reduce a cost, improve a design or fabrication process, or even venture into a new market. Applied Plastics Engineering Handbook covers both polymer basics – helpful to bring readers quickly up to speed if they are not familiar with a particular area of plastics processing – and recent developments – enabling practitioners to discover which options best fit their requirements. Each chapter is an authoritative source of practical advice for engineers, providing authoritative guidance from experts that will lead to cost savings and process improvements. Throughout the book, the focus is on the engineering aspects of producing and using plastics. The properties of plastics are explained along with techniques for testing, measuring, enhancing and analyzing them. Practical introductions to both core topics and new developments make this work equally valuable for newly qualified plastics engineers seeking the practical rules-of-thumb they don’t teach you in school, and experienced practitioners evaluating new technologies or getting up to speed on a new field The depth and detail of the coverage of new developments enables engineers and managers to gain knowledge of, and evaluate, new technologies and materials in key growth areas such as biomaterials and nanotechnology This highly practical handbook is set apart from other references in the field, being written by engineers for an audience of engineers and providing a wealth of real-world examples, best practice guidance and rules-of-thumb

Since its first application in the 1970s, Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) has steadily become one of the fastest growing trenchless construction methods for utility and conduit installation under surface obstacles. This rapid growth in HDD application could not have been accomplished without major development in engineering and design procedures, which take into account the unique characteristics of this technology. As a result, the most current HDD design references, at least to some extent, rely on studies carried out in other industries, e.g., oil well drilling and utility cable installation. These adoptions are often made without making proper adjustments, leading to inaccurate pipe designs. This dissertation aims to identify and address the shortcomings that exist in current pullback determination methods during pipe installation by HDD. Throughout the study, special attention is paid to the investigation and refinement of the proposed procedures by the two reference design documents used widely in North America: the ASTM F1962 method and the Pipeline Research Council International (PRCI) method, used for HDPE and steel pipe design, respectively. The dissertation is heavily tilted toward investigating the pipe-drilling fluid interaction since several studies have emphasized the necessity of refining the current practice of fluidic drag calculation. Two new methods for calculating fluidic drag are introduced: one applicable to power-law fluids and the other one for Herschel-Bulkley fluids. The latter accounts for pipe eccentricity and is based on the application of Finite Volume Method (FVM) to the HDD drilling fluid flow problem. Also, a series of simple methods for fluidic drag estimation are proposed, which are suitable for HDD practitioners to use and can be incorporated into future standards. For estimating the non-fluidic drag component of pullback force, two different models have been developed: one for steel pipes and the other for HDPE pipes. Unlike the PRCI method, the former doesn't involve an iterative procedure and, contrary to the ASTM F1962 method, the latter is not limited to crossings with specific bore geometry. For verification of the developed methods and models, pullback data collected on different crossings has been used. The data is provided by The Crossing Company (TCC), the industry partner of the Consortium for Engineered Trenchless Technologies (CETT) at the University of Alberta, and collected on different project sites for crossings executed in Alberta, Canada. The new proposed models have been able to simulate the recorded pullback forces, while the PRCI method failed to do so. It has been observed that the fluidic drag changes almost linearly with the installation progress; therefore, simple methods based on adaption of the pipe annulus to a slot can be used for estimating the fluidic drag. Furthermore, the fluidic drag is not a direct function of hydrokinetic pressure and, as a result, methods like ASTM F 1962 fail to predict the fluidic drag changes accurately. The FVM results revalued that the effect of eccentricity on the drag is insignificant, and its effects can be disregarded for practical application. The new proposed methods in this dissertation enables the HDD contactors/practitioners to predict drilling fluid flow within bore hole during pipe installation operation, so they can fine-tune their plans for drilling fluid collection and recovery.
