In fact, it is the construction method chosen par excellence to build a huge number of tunnels worldwide. Unlike the classical methods such as the Belgian or German approaches, where the tunnel is immediately supported without allowing it to deform naturally, NATM allows the deformation of the rock mass before stabilizing the tunnel, which. The British military historian Lyn MacDonald collected first-hand accounts in her book ‘They Called it Passchendaele - the story of the third battle of Ypres and of the men who fought in it'; one of these was Corporal Tom Newell from the st Tunnelling Company, who said: "To be a good clay-kicker you had to be long-legged, young and strong. At WSP, we have extensive experience with soft-ground tunnels on every continent, and we pride ourselves on developing innovative strategies to deal with even the most complicated soil situation while preserving stability. There are a wide variety of techniques for soft-ground tunneling, and the best fit is ultimately determined by ground type.

Tunnelling through molassic rocks is based on the experience picked up from the design and construction of 12 tunnels along the Egnatia Highway in northern Greece.

A context is displayed here concerning the distinctive rock masses of molassic rocks, the geotechnical behaviour of each type in tunnelling and the temporary support philosophy, both. Book review: The Tunnels, by Greg Mitchell. Greg Mitchell’s book covers the three years of tunnelling, from Many of the tunnels were actually begun in the West, some by idealists.

Transportation Tunnels, 2nd edition, provides a comprehensive text on tunnelling and tunnel engineering applicable in general to all types of tunnels, with more detailed information on highway and railway tunnels.
