IMPROVED SUBSURFACE INVESTIGATION FOR HIGHWAY TUNNEL DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION. VOLUME 1. SUBSURFACE INVESTIGATION SYSTEM PLANNING

This volume covers that study portion which evaluated current subsurface investigation techniques, investigated interactions of the subsurface investigation system elements, produced a value analysis model for indicating the relative value of achieving new levels of performance in a subsurface investigation system, and determined the feasibility of horizontal long-hole drilling. A critical analysis of known subsurface investigative techniques was made. Summaries are organized into groupings for comparison. Techniques not fully utilized or needing additional development are identified.
