Non-Circular Tunnelling: A New Way Forward – Lok Home, Robbins President
When a flat roadbed is needed, is a circular TBM the best way to go? In this exclusive presentation, Robbins President Lok Home will discuss methods and equipment currently being used in the mining industry for flat inverts, and its increasing potential for use in civil tunneling. Home will look at case studies in both mining and civil tunneling industries to demonstrate that by using non-circular TBMs, a flat invert can be safely and economically created in one pass.
