TRENCHLESS TECHNOLOGY CENTER
Trenchless Technology Center
The Trenchless Technology Center (TTC) at Louisiana Tech University is a cooperative research center for academia, government, and industry. The Center’s mission is to advance trenchless technology by serving as an independent source of knowledge, research, and education in the field. Trenchless technology includes a large family of methods used for installing and rehabilitating underground utility systems with minimal surface disruption and destruction resulting from excavation. The TTC utilizes a three-pronged approach to accomplish its mission: research & development, education, and technology transfer.
About Trenchless Technology Center (TTC)
The Trenchless Technology Center (TTC) was initiated as the Trenchless Excavation Center in 1989 and formally established as the TTC in Nov. 1991. It was created to promote research, development and technology transfer in the trenchless technology industry. In addition to its research activities, a strong effort has been focused towards the education of engineers, contractors, government agencies and others about the availability and capability of trenchless methods for the solution of difficult underground infrastructure problems. The TTC has also worked with various organizations in evaluating and developing new technologies for the industry. Industry members contribute financial support, expertise and guidance – principally through the TTC’s Industry Advisory Board (IAB). Organizations like the Louisiana Contractors’ Educational Trust Fund (CETF) play an important role in supporting the TTC.
