A LABORATORY AND FIELD INVESTIGATION OF TUNNEL BOREABILITY

A theoretical and experimental analysis of tunnel boreability is presented with a literature review. Results of laboratory and field tests were compared to determine the predictability of field boring performance from laboratory tests, and to examine the relationship between cutter forces and cutter edge angle, foliation, cutting velocity, and cutter wear. Recommendations for future study are given.
