THE FREEZING METHOD IN TUNNELLING OPERATIONS

LA CONGELACION DEL TERRENO EN LOS TRABAJOS DE TUNELES

The construction of a gallery or a shaft in a highly plastic, saturated ground or water-bearing granular soil can give rise to problems if normal construction methods are used. The freezing of the ground, although costly, can prove to be the adequate solution. After describing different soil freezing processes, the author comments on their application to tunnel drilling and gives a list of structures the construction of which utilized this technique.
