UNDERGROUND EXCAVATION. AN ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY
The bibliography covers all aspects of science, technology, and engineering that relate directly to excavation of underground openings in both soil and rock. The volume lists 600 document citations which contain excavation techniques other than drill-and-blast method. Each document is characterized by its type, originality of data, stage of project completion, excavation techniques, energy application methods, costs, ground conditions, materials handling systems and other operational or physical properties of the tunneling project. Cross-indexed listings provide access via the name of performing organization, funding organization, tunnel names, excavation techniques, authors, etc. Literature sources include journals, both national and international, books and monographs covering a period of 1960 to present. Approximately 60% of the document citations were published in the period 1972-1976.
