IMPROVED DESIGN OF TUNNEL SUPPORTS. VOLUME 1--VOLUME 5

This compendium is composed of five volumes. Volume 1--Analysis for Ground-Structure Interaction in Tunneling--is designed 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. Volume 2--Aspects of Yielding in Ground-Structure Interaction--focuses on a particularly and often misunderstood aspect of ground-structure interaction which is ground yielding and loosening, and reports new findings in this area. Volume 3--Finite Element Analysis of the Peachtree Center Station in Atlanta-contains the application of the three-dimensional finite element program, AUtomatic Dynamic Incremental Nonlinear Analysis, which was designed to replace the traditional two-dimensional plane strain analysis, to a specific location. Volume 4--Tunneling Practices in Austria and Germany--documents and evaluates extensive information gathered on tunnel contruction practices in Austria and Germany, identifies differences compared to U.S. practices, and describes new developments. The primary objective of Volume 5 (Empirical Methods in Rock Tunneling--Review and Recommendations) is to provide the tunneling professional with a review of empirical methods and to present some quidelines on what empirical methods are best suited for observational (adaptable) tunneling procedures.
