About the book

The immense benefits of tunnels can be readily recognized and have led to great strides in areas such as transportation, stormwater drainage, waste disposal, and pipeline networking. Requirements for tunnels depend on the intended functions and factors such as size, depth, configuration, and underground conditions. Achieving the desired functionality is usually multifarious and complex due to the range and interrelationships of the myriad of issues that must be taken into account.

This book provides further insights into the design and construction processes as well as the performance of tunnels. Areas covered include design considerations, modeling approaches, drilling and excavation techniques, measurement and instrumentation, tunneling in offshore environments, machinery and equipment, ground investigations, cost-benefit evaluations, environmental and social impacts, sustainability, and health and safety. The book aims to provide supplementary information that advances the frontier in tunnel engineering whilst serving as a first recourse for those new in the field of tunneling.
