The article focuses on pipe bursting and its relation to geotechnical conditions in the U.S. It notes that pipe bursting is a process of pipe replacement involving several main forces that must be overcome to attain installing a new pipe. Forces being discussed include expansion, drag, and the force of friction which is being exerted from the soil returning into contact with the new pipe as it is being installed.
