Economy, and Tree of responsibility has too msmy brar~es. The second Of these discusses some of the er~ineering aspects including groumd conditions amd tunnelling.

Reports the use of a Mini Fullfacer tura~lllng system which undercuts the rock amd breaks the remaining two thirds towards the free face. This system was selected for cutting a sewer tunnel t h r o t ~ hard Jurassic limestone, under existing railway and buildings in Laufen, Switzerlamd. The tunnel length was 250 m and passed through rock of average compressive strer~th 1000-1300 bar, with thin clay strata between the h~izontal rock banks. Average advance was 15 m per day.

Reports the use of the bentonite tummy11 ing machine for the 1.4km sewer tummel at Warrir~ ton, UK. Difficult and varied ground conditions including abrasive sandstone amd boulders instead of the expected sand caused slow progress although it is c l ~ m ~ d that the use of the machine has proved the validity of the process. 792106 MAJOR TRENDS IN TUNNEL CONSTRUCTION Hutchinson, D Water Serv, V82, N990, August 1978, I~92-496


Places tunnels in 3 categories: soft ground tumnels (ballasts, sands, clays), soft rock tunn e l s (chalks, shales, broken rock), hard rock tttmnels (massive sandstones, limestone, granites). Ground support and machinery requirements for these categories are reviewed, with particular reference to face excavation techniques.

792108 TUNN~/IING MACHINES COPE WITH VARIED ROCK CONDITIONS AT KIELD~ Berry, N S M Water Serv, V82, N988, June 1978, P353-356

The first tunnelling machine operation in Yugoslavla was a 2.3 m dla water supply tunnel driven through karst limestone in 1977-78. Four other machines have been werking during 1978. The turmels, methods of workir~, progress and difficulties encountered are described in each case. Advance rates are compared with those obtained with machines elsewhere in Europe and with those achieved by drill a~d blast techniques.

considers briefly the various rock types anticipated in the Derwent-Wear-Tees tunnels (sarastone, limestone, mmdstone, and mixed faces) amd reports the perfc~ms~ce of the full-face tunr~11ing machines being used in the tumnelll~g contract. To date, Ii maJc~ faults have been successfully negotiated.

The tura~el was constructed in free air amd has an intermal d/sneer of 2.13 m ~ l e a ~ 1830 m. Difficulties encountered with chalk deterlc~tion are discussed briefly.


SC~ RESISTS MAJOR ACID ATTACK ON TUNNEL D I V ~ I O N SCHEME Water Serv, V82, N968, June 1978, P357 Briefly reports a successful remedial operation to prevent highly acidic groum~water from attacking the concrete lining of %he Swan Brook diversion tunnel, West Midlamds. The scread is a synthetic resin cement with high resistance to maz~ reactive chemicals amd stromg permanent adhesion to a wide range of suBstrates. In this instance the screed was applied as a barrier ~rane within a sacrificial tunnel, to pro-


Correlations are made between Schmidt hammer rebound number, compressive strength, discontinuity frequency, RqD and Q-factar and the rate of advance of a roadheader through Coal Measures strata in a shallow tunnel. Poor correlations were obtained for ur~oned data. COrrelations were germ--rally improved when average values over zones of similar litholo~ were considered. A close correlation between Schmidt rebound n ~ r and advance rate was obtained. The results indicate the difficulty of predicting tunnel advance rates from isolated site investigation test data.

Discusses briefly the use of large dis~eter concrete pipes installed by pipe Jacking methods, and the alternative method of segmented t m m e l linings (concrete or iron) installed as excavation progresses.


ROCKBURSTS IN NEW YORK Bimder, L Tunn Tunnig, VlO, NS, 1978, P15-17 Rockbursts in the metsmorphic rocks u r ~ l y i n g N ~ Yark City have been known to tummellers since the late 1880' s. The phenomemon has created t~mnellimg difficulties in a variety Of rock types in the area. The problems amd the w~y in which they have been cour~ered are described.

792]_15 P ~ I N G MISCONCEPTIONS ON THE NEW AUSTRIAN TUNNELLING ~ T H O D MUller, L Tunn Ttmmlg, VlO, NS, 1978, P29-32 The author claims that the NATM has often been misunderstood: it is not so much a w~v of excavating amd supporting but rather a total concept. Success depends on following a set of principles, one of which is to utillse the rock mass as the main load bearing component with the lining establishing a load bearing rimg. Examples show that where the principles have not been followed, failure has resulted.
