HORIZONTAL BORING TECHNOLOGY: A STATE-OF-THE-ART STUDY

THIS PAPER DESCRIBES THE DIFFERENT MACHINES AND METHODS USED IN AUGERING, IMPACTING, PUSHING, DRILLING, AND MACHINE TUNNELING HORIZONTAL HOLES THROUGH SOIL AND ROCK. A REVIEW OF THE BOREHOLE SURVEY AND QUIDANCE TOLLS AND TECHNIQUES APPLICABLE TO THESE METHODS IS ALSO GIVEN. NONBORING METHODS USED FOR EMPLACEMENT OF POWER DISTRIBUTION AND TRANSMISSION LINES ARE BRIEFLY DISCUSSED. IT ENDS WITH A BRIEF TECHNICAL FORECAST, AN ANALYTICAL SUMMARY OF THE STATE OF THE ART, AND RECOMMENDATIONS BASED ON POWER INDUSTRY NEEDS. OBSTACLE DETECTION AND QUIDANCE SYSTEMS FOR DIRECTING BOREHOLES TO SPECIFIED TARGETS NEED MAJOR IMPROVEMENTS TO MEET THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE POWER INDUSTRY FOR UNDERGROUND BURIAL OF DISTRIBUTION AND TRANSMISSION LINES. /AUTHOR/
