A simplified method has been developed to estimate the pull loads on polyethylene pipe installed by a mini (or midi) - HDD process. The method and associated formulae are based upon approximations to the equations and procedures provided in ASTM F 1962, Standard Guide for Use of Maxi-Horizontal Directional Drilling for Placement of Polyethylene Pipe or Conduit Under Obstacles, Including River Crossings. The objective is to provide a convenient means of identifying potentially problematic mini-HDD installations and∕or to aid in the pipe selection process, in contrast to the extensive planning or analytical investigations characteristic of typical maxi-HDD projects. The proposed...
