This paper describes the detailed engineering design process in terms of the relative geotechnical interpretation stage, the subsequent multistaged numerical simulation steps by using SOFISTIK software, the critical decision making points and the actual results ...
Reference: Proceedings of the 31th ITA-AITES World Tunnel Congress, May 2005
The paper presents a decision making process for the determination of the numerous grouting parameters during design and the necessary corrective and evaluation actions during field trials or systematic grouting. Special application of design and execution ...
