Description:

Tunnelling provides a robust solution to a variety of engineering challenges. It is a complex process which requires a firm understanding of geotechnical conditions as well as structural issues. This book covers the whole range of areas which you need to know about 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 conditions;modelling methods, such as continuum and numerical techniques;outlines of the various tunnelling techniques;monitoring instrumentation both during and after 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.
