TUNNEL CONSTRUCTION. VOLUME 5. SEPTEMBER, 1977-JULY, 1978 (CITATIONS FROM THE ENGINEERING INDEX DATA BASE)
Unique tunneling methods, cost studies, tunnel support innovations, tunneling machines, and soil and rock properties encountered are investigated in these reports gathered in a worldwide literature survey. Vehicular, water, sewage, and mine tunnels are reviewed. Finite element analysis is used extensively for investigation of soil and rock mechanics. (This updated bibliography contains 175 abstracts, all of which are new entries to the previous edition.)
