successful modern tunnel boring machines use rotating grinding heads with cutting wheels for boring through rock. Below is an example of a tunnel boring machines which is equipped with a back hoe Whilst the cutting head has been a breakthrough on soft material the shield with a
Parameters monitoring and risk management is more and more important and necessary for Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) along with strata and environmental conditions are becoming increasingly complex. The accurate and real-time monitoring of TBM construction process is the basis of security for structure, environment and avoiding the engineering accidents.
operation for real time monitoring. This paper chronicles the monitoring advances implemented into tunnel boring machines (TBM) and their operations in the recent past. The modern TBM is a well instrumented machine capable of recording large sets of operational data.
Abstract. Parameters monitoring and risk management is more and more important and necessary for Tunnel Boring Machine(TBM) along with strata and environmental conditions are becoming increasingly complex. The accurate and real-time monitoring of TBM construction process is …
