The need for a single reference book of recommendations and guidance for tunnel lining design has long been recognised. In partnership with the Institution of Civil Engineers Research an Development fund, The British Tunnelling Society (BTS) considered that the valuable knowledge and experience of its members on tunnel lining design should be made available to the wider international underground construction industry. Tunnel lining design guide is primarily intended to provide those determining specifications of tunnel linings with a guide to the recommended rules and practices to apply in their design. In addition, it provides practitioners who procure, operate, or maintain tunnels, along with those seeking to acquire data for use in their design, with details of the factors that influence correct design, such as end use, construction practice and environmental influences.scenario of an accident with a tanker carrying 45001 of petrol exploding in a 1 2 m-diameter tunnel, producing a fire load of ... ways to determine the fire resistance of reinforced concrete members: tabulated data, fire test and fire engineeringanbsp;...
