EFFECT OF PRE-GROUND IMPROVEMENT METHOD DURING SHALLOW NATM TUNNEL EXCAVATIONS UNDER UNCONSOLIDATED CONDITIONS (2013)
<p>During the construction of the Bullet Train lines in Japan, several shallow tunnels were excavated in unconsolidated ground using the New Austrian Tunnelling Method (NATM). However, ground and tunnel settlements frequently occurred due to the low stiffness ...
SHOTCRETE EXCAVATIONS FOR THE MUNICH SUBWAY – COMPARISON OF DIFFERENT METHODS OF FACE SUPPORT IN SETTLEMENT SENSITIVE AREAS (2009)
<p>For the construction of shallow tunnels in settlement-sensitive urban areas it is very important to reduce the settlements and to increase the stability of the tunnel face during the excavation. In the case of shotcrete excavation, the use of different ...
TUNNEL FACE STABILITY AND SETTLEMENT CONTROL USING EARTH PRESSURE BALANCE SHIELD IN COHESIONLESS SOIL (2009)
<p>Soft ground tunneling, in urban areas are generally bored using pressurized TBM. Tunnel design involves the need to revalue the classical concepts of deformation response to the excavation and the control priorities, focalized on face and cavity, loose ...
