The Application of Ramming Technique in Pipeline Construction
Proceedings Publication Date
In several examples, ram application in general and especially in pipeline construction, is explained. Rams from the type Grundoram exists in different sizes and with different impact energy. Very common applications of Grundoram machines are dam site crossings of railsways, highways, roads and streets, profiles for tunnels and outlets. Horizontal and vertikal ramming job sites are demonstrated. Two main examples from job sites of 2008 show pipe ramming below streets for Saudi Aramco pipeline projects and an the removement of a stuck hole opener in a 3 km horizontal drilling project between Abu Ali and Berri Causeway in Saudi Arabia.
