TY - CHAP A1 - Michael G. Sakellariou ED1 - Michael Sakellariou Y1 - 2020-03-18 PY - 2020 T1 - Topics of Analytical and Computational Methods in Tunnel Engineering N2 - This volume presents a selection of chapters covering a wide range of tunneling engineering topics. The scope was to present reviews of established methods and new approaches in construction practice and in digital technology tools like building information modeling. The book is divided in four sections dealing with geological aspects of tunneling, analysis and design, new challenges in tunnel construction, and tunneling in the digital era. Topics from site investigation and rock mass failure mechanisms, analysis and design approaches, and innovations in tunnel construction through digital tools are covered in 10 chapters. The references provided will be useful for further reading.
