Civil Engineering for Underground Rail Transport focuses on civil engineering techniques in underground rail construction. The book first discusses the need for underground rail transport, including justification of underground systems and the techniques of civil engineering in underground construction. The text looks at civil engineering aspects of route planning. Curvature and gradients, drainage, ventilation, working sites, rolling stock depots, and construction materials are discussed. The book also discusses civil engineering aspects of station location and design, ground treatment, and tracks for underground railways. The text then examines cut and cover design and construction in reinforced concrete. Form and layout, construction methods, soil/structure interaction, reinforced concrete design, and design development are described. The compilation also looks at the construction of concrete piling and diaphragm walls, hand-dug caissons or wells, large reinforced concrete caissons, and immersed-tube and precast concrete tunnels. Tunneling machines and types of tunnels are also described. The book is a good source of information for readers interested in civil engineering.Instituion of Civil Engineers, Conditions of Contract for Works of Civil Engineering Construction, 5th edition, revised and reprinted, London (1986).
