Experts tell MEED that conventional mining methods – known as sequential excavation, the sprayed concrete method, the new Austrian tunnelling method (NATM) and other names – have a place in the future of tunnelling works in Gulf cities.
Methods of Tunnelling . There are various methods of tunnelling. The selection of a method depends upon the size of the bore, the condition of the ground, the equipment available, and the extent to which timbering is required.
one day seminar on "Construction Methods for Tunnelling", Buenos Aires - Argentina. October 22, 2010 - At the request of the Association of Tunnels and Underground Space (AATES), the Foundation organized a one day seminar on "Construction Methods for Tunnelling".
Tunnelling: Mechanics and hazards Jim St. Marie. Introduction. A tunnel is a long, narrow, essentially linear excavated underground opening, the length of which greatly exceeds its width or height.

observational methods, which it appears have always been used in applied soil mechanics, remains something of a mystery and a unique definition has not been found, a confusion of definitions has arisen. ... within the framework of the observational method. In tunnelling however there is a whole range of problems
Tunnel Construction and Tunnelling Methods. Pre-Deck Method Same as the open-cut method, the pre-deck method is suitable for high level tunnels.. The tunnel walls are constructed by the diaphragm walling method first and then the
International Tunnelling and Underground Space Association Website. A typical example of underground structure where a combination of methods is employed is a deep base transalpine tunnel, like Gotthard and Lotschberg tunnels in Switzerland.. Some of the reasons that recommend such a method of excavation in these tunnels are a wide range of geological and hydro-geological …
Tunnelling Methods. • local experience and time/cost considerations (what is the value of time in the project).The choice of tunnelling method may be dictated by: • geological and hydrological conditions. • cross-section and length of continuous tunnel. • limits of …
