Tunnel engineering is one of the oldest, most interesting but also challenging engineering disciplines and demands not only theoretical knowledge but also practical experience in geology, geomechanics, structural design, concrete construction, machine technology, construction process technology and construction management. The two-volume qHandbuch des Tunnel- und Stollenbausq has been the standard reference for German-speaking tunnellers in theory and practice for 30 years. The new English edition is based on a revised and adapted version of the third German edition and reflects the latest state of knowledge. The book is published in two volumes, with the first being devoted to more practical themes of construction and construction process in drill and blast and mechanised tunnelling. Microtunnelling and ventilation are also dealt with. All chapters include practical examples.2107 shows a diagram of the overhauled aSCOTTa test rig. ... The test rig is supplied with concrete mixed exactly to the test specification, which is supplied by the mixing unit (15). ... The mix is than delivered by a Schwing concrete pump (7).
