Book Description

Underground infrastructure undoubtedly constitutes one of the most important engineering equipments of urbanized areas. Such infrastructure includes energy distribution, communications and water, carry away sewage, elements of transportation systems of goods and people, storage facilities of articles, liquids and gases, as well as commercial, recreational and research activities and other functions.

Underground Infrastructure of Urban Areas is dedicated to the research, design, implementation and maintenance of infrastructure systems, as well as communication tunnels and building structures (garages, tanks, etc.) in urbanized areas. The book collects contributions from eight countries, presenting current scientific and technical issues associated with this area of the building industry. Both theoretical issues and cases studies on the design, execution and testing of underground infrastructures at expertise and scientific levels are included in the present work.

Presenting the state-of-the-art in underground infrastructure of urbanized areas, the book aims at academics, designers and builders of structures, producers and suppliers of building materials, equipment, and underground structures, and also to those managing and maintaining these structures.
