Book Description

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.
