Trenchless Technology Approach To Infrastructure - Amr El Sheikh &Mohammed El Sheikh (Bonian)
The third public lecture of the Conservation School on salt and groundwater problems in historic settings within the framework of Athar Lina's Groundwater Research Project.
The Lecture discusses the concept of trenchless technology which includes building and renewing infrastructure with the least amount of digging and damage to surfaces (paving and streets) using the different techniques and methods in the field. It is used in all types of infrastructure including water, sewage, gas, industrial pipes, electric cables, and communications optic fibres.
This technology is particularly a suitable structural choice in urban areas with high densities of traffic and infrastructure. and it can be in some cases the least expensive and destructive to the environment.
