  • tunnel watchingby Edmund W. Jupp

    Intellect Books Ltd 2003; US$ 12.00

    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...

  • Geotechnical Risk in Rock Tunnelsby António Campos e Matos; Luís Ribeiro e Sousa; Johannes Kleberger; Paulo Lopes Pinto

    CRC Press 2006; US$ 159.95

    Tunnels have a high degree of risk that needs to be assessed and managed. Underground works intersect and interact with natural materials, incorporating their characteristics as structural components of their own stability. For this reason geotechnical risk analyses are implemented at all phases of tunnel construction, from design through to post-construction... more...

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

    CRC Press 2008; US$ 209.95

  • The Railwayby Andrew Dow

    Wharncliffe 2014; US$ 39.99

    Never before has a comprehensive history been written of the track used by railways of all gauges, tramways, and cliff railways, in Great Britain. And yet it was the development of track, every bit as much as the development of the locomotive, that has allowed our railways to provide an extraordinarily wide range of services. Without the track of today,... more...

  • Safety in Tunnelsby OECD Publishing

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2001; US$ 33.00

    A serious incident involving dangerous goods in a tunnel can be extremely costly in terms of loss of human lives, environmental degradation, tunnel damage and transport disruption. On the other hand, needlessly banning dangerous goods from tunnels may create unjustified economic costs. Moreover, such a ban might force operators to use more dangerous... more...
