CUT-AND-COVER TUNNELING. VOLUME 1. CONSTRUCTION METHODS, DESIGN, AND ACTIVITY VARIATIONS

This report presents the results of a study to develop an analytical method for evaluating and optimizing cut-and-cover tunneling operations. The method is based on the results of a series of multiple estimates prepared by contractor type of basic resource estimating, rather than published unit prices. Major variables are type of structure, type of ground support, type of bracing, depth of excavation, and depth of water table. Volume 1 contains detailed descriptions of the study situations considered, the methodology to be employed, design criteria used, alternate methods of performing each construction activity, and a discussion on methods of cost analysis.
