About the book:

This proceedings, "Excavation and Support for the Urban Infrastructure", contains papers, which focus on various aspects of excavations and ground support technologies for renewal of the urban and suburban environments. There are three major subject areas covered by this work: Environmental, legal, and contractual issues, case histories, and design and construction considerations. Treatment of environmental, legal, and contractual aspects provides an overview of cross-cutting issues, which set the parameters, constraints, and special features of infrastructure projects. The case histories present unique or unusual solutions to the support and maintenance of adjacent structures, and also summarize the effects of excavation on adjacent facilities. Papers pertaining to design and construction considerations focus on cut-and-cover excavation systems, tunneling, urban blasting, and grouting technologies.
