Advances in Underground Pipeline Design, Construction and Management

Authoritative Book on Pipelines

The primary goal of this new book by Dr. Jeyapalan is to familiarize owners, utilities, engineers and contractors interested in pipeline design, construction and asset management with the recent body of knowledge and to alert them to common problems. In 400+ pages, Dr. Jeyapalan has documented, in SI and Imperial Units side-by-side, many valuable lessons he learned over 35 years working on over 300 pipelines in 28 countries.
