This chapter describes the fundamentals involved in designing, contracting, and monitoring the construction of pipelines installed by horizontal directional drilling (HDD). The HDD process represents a significant improvement over traditional cut and cover methods for installing pipelines beneath obstacles that warrant specialized construction attention. In order for these advantages to be realized, design engineers should have a working knowledge of the HDD process as well as a thorough understanding of design considerations and HDD industry standards.
