IMPROVED DESIGN OF TUNNEL SUPPORTS. VOLUME 5: EMPIRICAL METHODS IN ROCK TUNNELING - REVIEW AND RECOMMENDATIONS
Volume 5 evaluates empirical methods in tunneling. Empirical methods that avoid the use of an explicit model by relating ground conditions to observed prototype behavior have played a major role in tunnel design. The main objective of this volume is to provide the tunneling profession with a review of empirical methods, and to also present some guidelines on what empirical methods are best suited for observational (adaptable) tunneling procedures.
