concept-developmentThis is where the ideas come together, integrating the different component of the underground structure highlighting how other aspects of the construction interphase with each other.
Tunnel design is more than a determination of the structural adequacy of component parts – it must meet practical construction requirements to secure economy and safety in a range of ground conditions.
For this purpose multiple combined disciplines are required in the design of a tunnel or underground facility: Geology, Geotechnics, Environmental sciences, Soil and Rock Mechanics, Structure calculations, Electric Engineering or Hydraulics.
