This book includes the full text of the papers that will be presented at the 2021 conference covering such topics as contracting practices, design and planning, geotechnical considerations, hard rock tunnel boring machines, new and innovative technologies, pressure-face TBM case histories, and tunneling for sustainability. The papers will inform, challenge, and stimulate each reader.
The first resource of its kind, this practical nuts-and-bolts handbook provides an industry voice as well as recommendations for areas of concrete application. You'll get valuable insights into current best practices for all aspects of the design and construction of underground structural concrete.
Design-Build Subsurface Projects is an indispensable resource for owners, engineers, construction managers, contractors, and others involved in the design and construction of subsurface projects..
This is a story that can only be told by these industry experts who have studied that two-century journey, learned from it, and created the tools and technology needed to improve it..
This publication expands on the previously published Geotechnical Baseline Reports for Underground Construction: Guidelines and Practices.
It includes three new chapters on the application of GBRs to other types of subsurface projects, the application of GBRs in design/build project delivery, and recommendations based on industry-wide lessons learned.
This manual will help grouting machine operators perform their work without unnecessary stoppages from equipment failures, so a main focus is maintenance and repair of the various components common to most grouting equipment.
This year’s proceedings deliver the knowledge and technical detail you are in search of. Crafted from a collection of 87 papers written by experts and leaders in the industry who share their expertise, real-world applications, and “lessons learned” from around the globe, this book takes you deep inside today’s projects.
Changes in tunneling technology, more common use of design-build as a contracting mechanism, and many lessons learned have sparked some creative contract approaches. Included are chapters on relationships, project planning, subsurface conditions, risk management, design, construction management, cost estimates, schedules, pricing and payment provisions, contracts, changes, dispute resolution, and a new chapter on insurance.
This volume presents the latest technological innovations in underground design, construction, and operation and comprehensively discusses novelties in ground improvement, simulation, process integration, safety, monitoring, environmental impact, equipment, boring and cutting, personnel training, materials, robotics and more.
