Introduction to Tunnel Construction
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.
