Although tunneling constructions mean higher costs, in urban areas for example, this is seen as acceptable since it allows the planning to be less dependent on the existing infrastructure.In the meantime, both the technical possibilities as well as the demands made of this field of engineering have become more sophisticated, resulting in the execution of such projects and the method chosen having a high status.Aimed at newcomers, students and practitioners alike, this book represents a valuable aid in the planning and execution of modern tunnel constructions.
