IN SITU CONCRETE TUNNEL LINING TECHNIQUES
A description is given of the two established techniques for lining tunnels with insitu concrete: 1, the continuous advancing slope method; and 2, the successive bulkheaded sections method. This is followed by a discussion of their relative merits. More recent advances, culminating in the successful development of an extruded lining system in West Germany, are then reviewed. The article concludes with some tentative speculation on future trends in materials and equipment. See also TRIS 456269.
