Deep Excavation and Tunnels

Deep Excavation and Tunnels
Civil Engineering

To introduce learners to the various concepts associated with underground tunnels. The learners will gain basic knowledge about the various types of construction methods adopted for tunnels, caverns, and deep excavations and the design methodologies associated with each construction technique in accordance with the latest state of the art.

About the Course

Underground structures have become very crucial today due to various reasons, such as growing urbanization, development of strategic structures like oil storage caverns, hydroelectric projects, improvement in rail road connectivity, etc. The need for experts involved in the design as well as site management for these underground structures is rapidly increasing throughout the world. Therefore, this course on deep excavation and tunnels is structured in a way to impart a brief understanding on the various types of underground its tunnel, caverns and shafts, components, construction methodology, and certain basic design aspects in the field on geotechnical/rock engineering and tunneling.

Learning Outcomes

Learners will be able to:

  • Understand the different types of underground structures, components associated with it and its support system.
  • Arrive at the right construction technique to be adopted for tunneling based on various conditions.
  • Understand the basics of various design methodologies being practiced.
  • Understand the basics of design software’s used in the industry for design of underground structures.
  • Get and overview and importance of Instrumentation and
  • Monitoring in tunneling
