Book Description :

Shield Construction Techniques in Tunnelling presents the latest on this fast, environmentally-friendly and relatively safe construction technique, reflecting on its technical risks and challenges as seen in China. Sections introduce the type of shields, the history of the technique, shielding principles, selection, management, the latest techniques in operation, consider engineering cases, discuss construction in gravel, soft-soil, composite, and rock strata, and present video clips of construction that are accessible through QR codes embedded in the text. The book combines theory and practical experience, giving the reader unique insights into shield equipment and construction techniques. The shield tunneling technique is being used very widely, particularly in China, which is building urban-rail transit systems at an unparalleled scale and speed. The use of tunneling-shields provides a fast, relatively-safe, and ecologically-friendly method for the construction of tunnels. However, a number of incidents have shown the risks involved in tunnelling through geologically complex areas. Gives the principles and practice of shield construction techniques, including shield selection and operation Demonstrates the latest technologies in shield construction that can be applied in practice Reflects on the technical risks and challenges of shield construction, based on extensive use of the technique for tunnel construction in China Discusses challenges in construction in gravel, soft-soil, composite and rock strata Provides engineers with applicable insights into shield equipment and construction techniques

Book Description :

Since its early beginnings in 1806, mechanised shield tunneling has become one of the most important tunnelling techniques. Although Japan's current pioneering role cannot be denied, the state of development in Germany and Europe has once again reached a high level of international recognition.The present book explains the history of this construction method. It outlines basic information and presents the various types of shields and linings with the corresponding equipment and range of application. The book examines various projects, including not only large ones such as the Channel tunnel or the Belt tunnel, but also small, often just as interesting projects such as underground railway tunnels. The problems involved in such projects as well the state of the art technology used to confront them are fully described. The book is presented in such a way that the reader is led from the bases of this construction method, through the essential functional elements of the shield machines and on to the different types of shields.The universality of the book is guaranteed through the involvement of three leading experts, the researcher B. Maidl, the machine manufacturer M. Herrenknecht and the contractor L. Anheuser. For all those working in the field this book is a must. It will be of great use for present and future tunnelling projects.

Book Description :

High-speed railways, subways, and other forms of rail transport are being built across the world, driving a need for fast and efficient tunnelling techniques. Shield Tunnel Engineering: From Theory to Practice is a key technique that offers one of the most important ways to build tunnels in fast, relatively safe, and ecologically friendly ways. Shield Tunnel Engineering: From Theory to Practice presents a state-of-the-art solution for engineers working within the field of shield tunnelling technology for railways. The book includes expertise from major projects in shield tunnel construction for high-speed rail, subways, and other major projects. In particular, the volume presents a series of advances in shield muck conditioning technology, slurry treatment, backfill grouting, and environmental impact and control. Foundational knowledge is combined in the volume with the latest advances in shield tunnel engineering. Twelve chapters cover key areas including geological investigation; the types, structures and workings of shield machines; selecting a machine; shield segment design; shield tunnelling parameter control; soil conditioning for earth pressure balance (EPB) shield tunnelling; shield slurry treatment; backfill grouting; environmental impact; and problems in shield tunnel structures and their amelioration. This book presents the essential knowledge needed for shield tunnel engineering, the latest advances in the field, and practical guidance for engineers. Presents the foundational concepts of shield tunnel engineering Gives the latest advances in shield tunnel engineering techniques Considers common problems in shield tunnel structures and their solutions Lays out step-by-step guidance for engineers working with shield tunnelling Assesses environmental impacts and their control in shield tunnel engineering

Book Description :

The only modern guide to all aspects of practical tunnel construction Practical Tunnel Construction fills a void in the literature for a practical guide to tunnel construction. By taking the reader through a brief introduction and history to a comprehensive discussion of how the geological factors affect tunneling, the author covers the stages and technology that are common today without using complex equations. Written for the individual who does not have an extensive background in tunneling but who has to make tunneling decisions, the various tunneling methods are discussed to help in the determination of the appropriate method. The methods discussed are: hand mining, drill/blast, Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM), New Austrian Tunnelling Method (NATM), Norwegian Method of Tunnelling (NMT), Roadheader, Earth Pressure Balance Machine (EPBM), and Slurry Pressure Balance Machine (SPBM). This book focuses on driven tunnels. This versatile handbook: Offers clear and accessible coverage of the state of the art in tunnel construction Introduces the essentials of design and construction of many types of tunnels, including TBM, EPB, Roadheader, NATM, drill and blast, and soft ground tunneling Provides nontechnical guidance on selecting the most appropriate tunneling methods for various situations Includes a brief history of tunneling and an introduction to geotechnical considerations Discusses tunnel access shaft construction, mucking methods, tunnel haulage, grout, water handling, and much more Practical Tunnel Construction is an important resource for students, construction managers, tunnel designers, municipal engineers, or engineers who are employed by government agencies or corporations that are exploring the feasibility of planning and designing or building a tunnel.
