The HDD Stress Analysis Webinar for Pipeline Engineers

Technical Toolboxes presents the HDD Stress Analysis Webinar, a pipeline engineer event about Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) recorded on August 12th, 2020. Subject matter expert David Willoughby covers the technical concepts and critical factors in designing an HDD crossing. In this video, he drills down on HDD design and construction and its contribution to pipeline projects. The result is a fascinating webinar and the perfect opportunity to explore the engineering principles and concepts of HDD.
