Tunnelling is certainly one of the most fascinating but difficult civil engi-neering disciplines. This chapter illustrates some techniques for tunnel design starting from the rock mass classifications. For bored tunnels the New Austrian Tunnelling Method (NATM) and the ADECO-RS method are presented; while the cut and cover method is briefly analysed for artificial tunnels. It also describes some simple criteria for choosing the tunnel cross section types and the number of tubes in function of the railway line types (single or double-track lines) and length.

Abstract

Tunnelling is certainly one of the most fascinating but difficult civil engi-neering disciplines. This chapter illustrates some techniques for tunnel design starting from the rock mass classifications. For bored tunnels the New Austrian Tunnelling Method (NATM) and the ADECO-RS method are presented; while the cut and cover method is briefly analysed for artificial tunnels. It also describes some simple criteria for choosing the tunnel cross section types and the number of tubes in function of the railway line types (single or double-track lines) and length.
