Geological Constraints and Geotechnical Issues in Mechanized Tunnelling

Mechanized tunnelling is evolving dramatically and every year constraints are reduced and TBM tunnelling is applied in new geological situations. Progressing from homogeneous, stable rocks through heterogeneous formation and unstable rocks, today the positive control of the face, or dealing with squeezing ground, constitute a great advance.
