reference material

In addition to providing background information on JDH&A, we also want this site to serve as a source of information related to the design of HDD crossings. In this regard, we have posted technical papers that have been authored by members of our firm, or by other professional engineers with whom we have worked closely over the years. If you use any of the posted material in another work, please respect the author's and publisher's copyright and cite it appropriately. You should also be aware that HDD design methods and techniques are constantly evolving and some of the information presented in these papers has become, or eventually will become, obsolete.
