The proceedings from the 2011 Rapid Excavation and Tunneling Conference (RETC) in San Francisco chronicle the extraordinary achievements that have taken place in the industry over the past two years.
Inside this authoritative, 1608-page book you'll find the 115 influential papers that were presented at the conference, providing valuable insights from projects in San Francisco and New York City, as well as Germany, New Zealand, Australia, Sweden, Mexico, Canada, China, the Czech Republic, Switzerland, and many more.
Virtually every aspect of tunneling is examined, from contract practices to design, drill-and-blast excavation, tunnel boring machines, ground support and final lining, and ground modification.
You'll gain from the lessons learned-often the hard way-from large and demanding projects in difficult ground conditions.
This book is an indispensable resource for design and construction engineers and contractors in the large-scale, civil tunnel industry who want to stay on the leading edge of their profession.
A CD with the full text of this book is also included for your convenience.
