Tunnel Engineering
The design and construction of tunnels i.e. tunnel engineering is among the most specialized fields in geotechnical engineering and myriad issues must be addressed before a tunnel can become operational.Tunnels are important underground structures that accommodate movement of people, vehicles, water, materials etc.  In this section tunnel engineering aspects such as: tunnel design, tunnel construction, microtunneling, tunnel monitoring, tunnel rehabilitation and risk assessment are included together with other important publications related to tunnel engineering.
