The use of underground space is a key factor for sustainable development of both industrial as well as emerging and developing countries. Underground transalpine transport links, the tendency for larger diameters, difficult geological conditions or high groundwater pressures pose major challenges for tunneling and drilling technologies.
The workshop series ,Herausforderung Tunnelbau 2018' will once again be dedicated to an exciting and up-to-date topic this year.
Prof. Konrad Bergmeister will talk about the Brenner Base Tunnel and its geotechnical and tunnel engineering challenges in the construction of an emergency stop in Innsbruck.
The lecture by Dipl.-Ing. Felix Amberg focuses on a 100 km long tunnel between Helsinki and Tallin, whose structural and economic aspects represent the next generation of long tunnels.
