IMPROVED DESIGN OF TUNNEL SUPPORTS. 5 VOLUMES ANALYSIS FOR GROUND-STRUCTURE INTERACTION IN TUNNELING

This five-volume report includes the results of an extensive research effort by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to improve the design methodologies available to tunnel designers. The purpose of this report is to provide the tunneling profession with improved practical tools in the technical or design area, which provide more accurate representations of the ground-structure interaction in tunneling. The design methods range from simple analytical and empirical methods to sophisticated finite element techniques as well as an evaluation of tunneling practices in Austria and Germany. (UMTA)
