About this title:
This book explains the history of this construction method, outlining basic information and presenting the various types of shields and linings with the corresponding equipment and range of applications. It examines various projects, including not only such large ones as the Channel or the Belt tunnel, but also small, equally interesting projects such as underground railways. The problems involved as well the technology used to confront them are fully described, and the text is structured in such a way that readers are led from the basics of this construction method, via the essential functional elements of the shield machines and on to the different types of shields.
The universality of the book is guaranteed by the three expert authors, a researcher, machine manufacturer and contractor respectively. Invaluable for current and future tunnelling projects and a must for all those working in the field.
From the Back Cover: This book covers the history and development of mechanised shield tunnelling. It presents the principles of this construction method and the different types of Shields, moving from shield design and dimensioning through excavation methods, transport of the excavated material and tunnel lining to surveying and machine guidance. Health and safety as well as contractual aspects are also given particular attention. Groundbreaking interdisciplinary work by three experts in the field of mechanised shield tunneling makes this the most comprehensive source of information on this subject up until now.
