By Steve Redmond, Victor Romero

Each years, specialists and practitioners from around the globe assemble on the prestigious speedy Excavation and Tunneling convention (RETC) to profit concerning the newest advancements in tunneling know-how, and the signature tasks that aid society meet its growing to be infrastructure wishes. inside of this authoritative 1608-page publication, you will find the one hundred fifteen influential papers that have been provided offering precious insights from tasks around the globe. you will achieve from the teachings learned--often the demanding way--from huge and critical tasks in tough floor conditions.

This booklet will take you underground for a pragmatic, up-close investigate headline-making tasks from worldwide. almost each point of tunneling is tested. it really is an necessary source for layout and building engineers and contractors within the large-scale civil tunnel who are looking to remain at the innovative in their career.

As the Interlocking Cavern width tapered to the smallest size, the crown length decreased with the shoulder lengths increasing. The constant arch radius for the adjustable formwork is an ideal method. However, as the cavern widens, the arch becomes relatively flat. The structural analysis showed that as the cross sectional geometry approached the midpoint of the Interlocking Cavern limits, where the crown length was equal to the length of the two shoulder arch lengths, the crown attracted higher flexural-bending moments when compared to other analyzed section cuts.

This project is the result of an agreement (consent decree) with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to improve water quality in the District’s waterways, specifically Rock Creek and the Anacostia and Potomac rivers, by implementing a long term control plan (LTCP) to reduce sewagecontaminated storm water discharges (CSOs). The need for the LTCP is a result of many older developed areas of the District having combined sewer systems that carry both sanitary and storm flows. During periods of heavy rainfall, the combined sewers are overwhelmed by the increased flows causing overflow of untreated sewage into these rivers and their tributaries.

Once the machine passes through the plug and the trailing gear clears the wye, the plug removal can start. The use of a concrete plug provided a benefit in that it permits less overall TBM re-launch time (50% less time on average) and reduced wye excavation sizes. On the other hand, a concrete plug restricts access to locations down station in the tunnel until the concrete is removed. Also, there is a hazard of gripper damage during advance because of cold joints in the concrete breaking. Removal of concrete muck can be difficult while maintaining TBM advance (usually shuts down TBM for couple weeks).
