Om boka

In the 21st century, the increasing scope of urban tunneling projects necessitates ever more complex construction methods to meet ecological, ecopolitical and economic demands. Tunnels are becoming longer, deeper and larger, making successful projects more difficult to realize. The special constraints of urban settings, including extremely stringent performance requirements for minimal disturbance to the public and to the surrounding utilities, structures and the environment, greatly exacerbate the challenges of successful tunnelling.





Based on over twenty years' experience, Fundamentals of Shield Tunnelling--Design and Construction provides comprehensive and current guidance on key aspects of the design and construction of shield tunnels from the basic concepts to detailed technical requirements. It contains numerous case studies examining projects completed over the past decade, including the large diameter Shanghai Yangtze river tunnel and Qianjiang river tunnel, together with smaller diameter projects such as underground railways and maglev tunnels.





Although shield tunnelling has been addressed in numerous articles, only a few books consider modern case histories in detail. This book, by internationally recognised experts is intended to fill this gap.
