This volume presents the most up-to-date information collected on the design and construction of underground structures - tunnels, shafts and chambers. There is extensive discussion on the design of rock and soil tunnels, subsurface investigation, laboratory and (in situ) tests on host ground, drilling and blasting, tunnel-boring and other machines, freezing, grouting, construction methods, lake tap and cost estimating. Civil, structural, geotechnical and planning aspects for the design and construction of underground structures are covered in detail. This book and its complimentary volume "Underground Structures - Design and Instrumentation", together should serve the engineering and construction needs of planners, executives, geologists, civil-, structural-, and geotechnical engineers, who are interested in the design, construction and operation of underground structures.
