This richly-illustrated reference guide presents innovative
techniques focused on reducing time, cost and risk in the
construction and maintenance of underground facilities: A primary
focus of the technological development in underground engineering
is to ease the practical execution and to reduce time, cost and
risk in the construction and maintenance of underground facilities
such as tunnels and caverns. This can be realized by new design
tools for designers, by instant data access for engineers, by
virtual prototyping and training for manufacturers, and by robotic
devices for maintenance and repair for operators and many more
advances. This volume presents the latest technological innovations
in underground design, construction, and operation, and
comprehensively discusses developments in ground improvement,
simulation, process integration, safety, monitoring, environmental
impact, equipment, boring and cutting, personnel training,
materials, robotics and more. These new features are the result of
a big research project on underground engineering, which has
involved many players in the discipline. Written in an accessible
style and with a focus on applied engineering, this book is aimed
at a readership of engineers, consultants, contractors, operators,
researchers, manufacturers, suppliers and clients in the
underground engineering business. It may moreover be used as
educational material for advanced courses in tunnelling and
