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, one that requires a firm understanding of ground conditions and structural issues in which engineering judgment plays an essential role. Introduction to Tunnel Construction discusses the range of topics that one would need to know in order to embark on 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.
