  • Tunnel Watchingby Edmund W. Jupp

    Intellect 2003; US$ 10.00

    The aim of the Watching series is to draw attention to some of the very interesting items around us, things that perhaps we don't notice as much as we might. The first was Bridge Watching, and when this was put ''on the Net'' it produced, to the surprise of the author, such a pleasant flood of e-mail that another was written, called Water Watching.... more...

  • Mechanized Tunnelling in Urban Areasby Vittorio Guglielmetti; Piergiorgio Grasso; Ashraf Mahtab; Shulin Xu

    Taylor and Francis 2008; US$ 199.95

The subject of mechanized tunnelling in urban areas has not previously received the attention that it deserves, despite there being specific hazards associated with... more...

  • Design and Construction of Tunnelsby Pietro Lunardi

    Springer 2008; US$ 179.00

    This work illustrates how the Analysis of Controlled Deformation in Rocks and Soils (ADECO-RS) is used in the design and the construction of tunnels. The ADECO-RS approach makes a clear distinction between the design and the construction stages and allows reliable forecasts of construction times and costs to be made. It uses the advance core (the core... more...
