Because of their complexity and scale, metro structures capture all the essential aspects of a cut-and-cover structure, and so are given primary focus in this book. The design of a metro construction is outlined coherently and in detail; and the reader is shown how to apply this design process equally well to other, relatively simple, cut-and-cover structures. Geotechnical and structural engineering principles are combined with both design and construction practice to make this book a unique guide for engineers.Geo-Structural Design: An Integrated Approach Krishan Kaul ... forgotten by the common masses, usefulness and worth of the underground metro system will continue to be gauged, ... going to be readily accessible and, consequently, gaining access to such areas for the purposes of repairs can be prohibitively expensive.
