  • Immersed Tunnelsby Richard Lunniss; Jonathan Baber

    CRC Press 2013; US$ 169.95

    Immersed tunnels have been around for more than a century but remain a relatively unknown form of tunnel construction. For waterway crossings they are an effective alternative to bored tunnels and bridges, particularly in shallower waters, soft alluvial soils, and earthquake-prone areas. Successful implementation requires a thorough understanding... more...

  • Tunnellingby Alan Muir Wood

    CRC Press 2002; US$ 188.95

    Tunnelling has become a fragmented process, excessively influenced by lawyers'notions of confrontational contractual bases. This prevents the pooling of skills, essential to the achievement of the promoters' objectives. Tunnelling: Management by Design seeks the reversal of this trend. After a brief historical treatment of selected developments,... more...

  • Tunnelling Contracts and Site Investigationby Dr P.B. Attewell

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 353.00

    A wide ranging and up-to-date review of experience of tunnelling contracts, particularly those for sewerage and drainage tunnels. The review is based on the 6th edition of the ICE Conditions of Contract, but it takes note of new forms of contract which are leading towards less adversarial contractual relations.^ more...

  • The Channel Tunnel Storyby G Anderson; B. Roskrow

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 125.95

    The Channel Tunnel is a huge construction project, employing over 14,000 people at peak, and costing over 11 billion of private money. It has succeeded in spite of great financial, political and techncial difficulties, and a fundamentally flawed contract. This book tells the story of the project, based on the coverage in Construction News and with... more...

  • Tunnelling and Tunnel Mechanicsby Dimitrios Kolymbas

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2005; US$ 181.15

    Tunnellingisanexcitingandrapidlyevolvingtechnology.Pioneeringprocesses are commonplace and innovative thinking continues to rewrite the rules. In civil engineering, tunnelling is one of the few areas where new horizons are constantly being discovered. But for the profession to reach its full potential, tunnelling needs to be more accessible to those... more...

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

    CRC Press 2008; US$ 209.95

    Internationally, the mechanized excavation of tunnels has intensified in the last two decades, as the number of tunnels being constructed for subways and railway underpasses increases. 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 Berlin Heidelberg 2008; US$ 117.21

    This work, written by a leading Italian expert, illustrates how the Analysis of Controlled Deformation in Rocks and Soils (ADECO-RS) is used in the design and the construction of tunnels. This is a very new and effective way of tunnel construction. more...

  • Sprayed Concrete Lined Tunnelsby Alun Thomas

    CRC Press 2008; US$ 172.95

    Practising engineers on site, in the design office or in client organizations will find this book an excellent introduction to the design and construction of sprayed concrete lined (SCL) tunnels. The complex behaviour of the early age behaviour of the sprayed concrete requires careful management. This book covers all aspects of SCL tunnelling ? from... 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...
