2011 Rapid Excavation and Tunneling Conference Proceedings by Steve Redmond, Victor Romero

By Steve Redmond, Victor Romero

Each years, specialists and practitioners from all over the world assemble on the prestigious speedy Excavation and Tunneling convention (RETC) to benefit in regards to the most up-to-date advancements in tunneling expertise, and the signature tasks that aid society meet its growing to be infrastructure wishes. inside of this authoritative 1608-page booklet, you can find the a hundred and fifteen influential papers that have been awarded supplying worthy insights from tasks around the world. you are going to achieve from the teachings learned--often the tough way--from huge and significant tasks in tough floor conditions.

This ebook will take you underground for a realistic, up-close look at headline-making initiatives from around the world. almost each element of tunneling is tested. it really is an integral source for layout and development engineers and contractors within the large-scale civil tunnel who are looking to remain at the innovative in their career.

45 m (8 feet). The cross-section geometry for the interlocking caverns was set by maintaining train clearances and the method of lining the caverns. In the original Contract Documents it was envisaged the caverns would be lined with reinforced cast-in-place concrete using a semi-hydraulic adjustable form system with constant crown and shoulder radii, as more fully described below. The Initial Ground Support is designed to prevent failure of rock blocks from the crown and sidewalls of the caverns, tunnels and shafts with excavation support consisting of combinations of rock bolts and dowels, welded wire fabric, channels, mine straps, steel ribs with lagging, and shotcrete.

4. The purpose of thits analysis was to verify and possibly modify the preliminary initial support system requirements as derived using UNWEDGE, and also to estimate long term loading conditions for the lower level GCT4 structures. UDEC is a two dimensional plane strain DEM code suited for plane strain problems such as tunnels, by assuming that the deformation of the mass perpendicular to the model is small. The discontinuity features are inherently assumed to strike perpendicular to the model section.

POST-AWARD STRUCTURAL DESIGN Subsequent to the award of Contract CM019 to DJ, already working on Contract CM009, there was extensive consultation between the Contractor, MTA CC and the GEC to effectively combine the two contracts operationally into one, while maintaining their separate contract identities for administrative and funding reasons. As noted above, key concepts were maximization of TBM use and substitution of roadheader excavation for drill-and-blast excavation in non-TBM area to the maximum extent possible.
