Variable Density TBMs and the Related Considerations
Variable Density TBMs are used in more and more projects around the world. As they offer unique capabilities for face support, tunneling in extremely difficult ground conditions becomes safer. The lecture discussed the different mechanics of face support and the technical means to realize them. A number of international projects are introduced as well as the different TBM concepts which have been deployed.
