Vast knowledge has been developed in the area of tunnelling in weak rocks over the years, and this book bridges an important gap by bringing all the information together for the benefit of the tunnelling Industry.
We have rock tunneling specialists in transportation, rail & transit, underground stations, water & waste water, power & energy, underground storage and more.
Swelling rock: Swelling rock advances into the tunnel primarily by the expansion of the rock itself. This condition seems to be limited to rocks containing clays, such as montmorillonite, which have a high capacity to swell when hydrated.
Tunneling in rock presents special challenges to the geotechnical engineer. In this lecture, Dr. Evert Hoek outlines a few interesting case studies of tunnel...
Between Omaha and Sacramento there are nineteen tunnels. Four of these are on the Union Pacific and fifteen on the Central. The tunnels of the Central Pacific are nearly all near the summit, where it crosses the western range of the Sierra Nevada.
