Author(s):Hashash, Youssef M. A.; Baltaji, Omar; Xing, Guangchao; Liang, Yongxi
Subject(s):Horizontal Directional Drilling
Case Histories Observation
Industry Survey
Risk Mitigation
Abstract:While the fundamentals of horizontal directional drilling (HDD) technology are well known, the implementation of HDD involves utilizing a vast range of equipment and installation procedures. This project developed HDD guidance documents to provide the Illinois Department of Transportation with metrics to evaluate a proposed HDD installation. This report compiled information collected during this project, including a literature review, HDD case histories observation, and an industry survey. Four main guidance documents, including the proposed HDD Guidelines, HDD Guidance Specifications, Permit Submittal Checklist, and Inspector Checklist, are the main products developed from the project.
