  2. Geotechnical Risk in Rock Tunnels

    Selected Papers from a Course on Geotechnical Risk in Rock Tunnels, Aveiro, Portugal, 16–17 April 2004

    Edited by António Campos e Matos, Luís Ribeiro e Sousa, Johannes Kleberger, Paulo Lopes Pinto

    Tunnels have a high degree of risk that needs to be assessed and managed. Underground works intersect and interact with natural materials, incorporating their characteristics as structural components of their own stability. For this reason geotechnical risk analyses are implemented at all phases of...
