Control and Monitoring Tunnels and Underground Space
The aim is to provide methods and examples of “monitoring” the effects of tunnelling, including the monitoring of tunnel machine performance, in order to achieve acceptable excavation performance with stable underground structures and prevent damage to existing structures and utilities. Monitoring allows the tunnel design and construction procedures to be adjusted and validated as tunnelling takes place.
Topics include instrumentation, risk management, contractual aspects and case histories.
The main objectives is to provide information, methods and examples of "monitoring" the effects of tunnelling, including the monitoring of tunnel machine performance to control tunnelling to accieve acceptable excavation performance wirh stable underground structures. Main topics include:
- General presentation of tunnel monitoring
- Types of instruments, data collection and information management
- Monitoring methods in mechanized tunnelling
- Topographical methods to monitor deformations
- Instrumentation installation
This course will be followed by a site visit on the 29th to the Punatshangchhu Hydroelectric Project.
