Developing a system to measure rheology of conditioned soil for soft-ground TBM tunneling
Driven by the unprecedented process of urbanization across the globe and rise of need in infrastructure such as transportation, water, sewer, utilities, storage space, etc., the world has witnessed rapid expansion of the tunneling and underground construction industry in the past few decades. Among all tunnel construction methods, the growth of soft-ground tunneling using Earth Pressure Balance (EPB) Tunnel Boring Machines (TBMs) has been the most significant. EPB TBMs use the excavated muck in the machine chamber as a supporting medium before moving it to the muck haulage system. This is conducted ...
