The American Society of Civil Engineers’ (ASCE) new book, Pipe Ramming, MOP 115, Second Edition, details the latest and best practices used by engineers and construction professionals for the design and construction of road and railroad crossings using pipe ramming technologies. The manual provides both introductory and advanced design and construction information to support the safe, cost-effective, and efficient application of the pipe ramming method.

Divided into seven sections, the book is based upon the results of case studies, workshops, project reviews, technical papers, and other information contributed by industry experts. Part 1 presents general concepts and includes an introduction, history, recent innovations, applicable documents, typical applications, and a glossary of terms. Parts 2 through 5 provide important information on the planning, design, preconstruction, materials, and construction phases of the pipe ramming method. Part 6 presents several case studies, and Part 7 contains a list of references.

MOP 115, Second Edition, will be valuable to both new and experienced engineers, as well as utility owners, contractors, and other industry professionals.
