Introduction to Tunnel Construction

New or Used: 3 copies from $52.12
Tunnelling is one of the most fascinating disciplines within civil engineering and 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 and where engineering judgement plays an essential role. This book covers the whole range of areas which you need to know in order to embark upon a career in the exciting field of 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; and, 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.
