Introduction to Tunnel Construction: Volume-3

File Size: 9.57 mb

 Tunnelling provides a robust solution to a variety of engineering challenges. It is a complex process, which requires a firm understanding of the ground conditions as well as structural issues. This book covers the whole range of areas that you need to know in order to embark upon a career in tunnelling. It also includes a number of case studies of real tunnel projects, to demonstrate how the theory applies in practice.

The coverage includes:

  • Both hard-rock and soft-ground conditions
  • Site investigation, parameter selection, and design considerations
  • Methods of improving the stability of the ground and lining techniques
  • Descriptions of the various tunnelling techniques
  •  Health and safety considerations
  • Monitoring of tunnels during construction
Clear, concise, and heavily illustrated, this is a vital text for final-year undergraduate and MSc students and an invaluable starting point for young professionals.
