  • Tunnel excavation failures and unforeseen ground conditions
    • Abstract: This paper focuses on the evaluation by forensic geotechnical engineers of unforeseen ground conditions in a tunnel excavation and the contractual consequences. A case study is presented of a water transfer tunnel built in Italy at the beginning of the 1990s. A sizeable pressurised aquifer was discovered at the tunnel entrance, which ultimately resulted in the contract being terminated. The aim of this paper is to examine further the geological-geotechnical conclusions of the case study, with a view to relating them to the legal and contractual evaluations and, consequently, to the field of forensic engineering.
       
  • Failures in air-conditioning systems
    • Abstract: Air conditioning, like all mechanical systems, fails from time to time. Apart from the discomfort it causes, such failures can mean significant financial costs or losses for some of the parties involved in designing, delivering or maintaining the systems. The cost of engineering services installation in modern buildings can vary from around 10% to almost 40% of the total cost of construction, and this is much greater as a proportion of life-cycle costs. When things go wrong, it can be very expensive and one or more of the parties will want to find out what caused the problem, how it can be resolved, how much the remedial works will cost and, importantly, who was responsible, because they will most likely be liable for the bill. An overview is provided of three cases where air conditioning has failed and the liability was disputed. These cases include: a film archive where a dehumidifier unit generated heat and moisture instead of removing moisture; a large office complex where water chillers failed after only 12 months and hundreds of control valves failed; and a large chilled water system that was corroding beneath the insulation for 10 years before the corroded pipes started leaking.
       
  • Diagnosing causes of lining cracks in mountain tunnels
    • Abstract: Identifying causes of lining anomalies is essential to safety evaluations and repair measures for an existing tunnel. Based on particular inspection cases and scientific literature, potential causes of lining cracks are examined in detail, and the relationships between the causes and eight patterns of lining cracks are identified. This study investigates the characteristics of these typical cracks, characterises their spatial distribution digitally and develops an approach for diagnosing causes of lining cracks in mountain tunnels. A railway tunnel is investigated to validate the proposed approach for diagnosing causes of lining cracks, and is used as an example to demonstrate the use of the proposed approach.
       
  • Investigating continual damage of a nineteenth century masonry tunnel
    • Abstract: The Shiqiling tunnel, an ancient masonry structure built during 1888–1890, is the first tunnel in Taiwan. Designated as an official monument, the tunnel comprises stone walls and brick or stone vaults. The continual flaking and spalling of bricks in the past two decades prompted thorough tunnel investigations. To avoid any artificial damage, non-destructive technologies are utilised to acquire tunnel data. Visual inspections and mosaicked images reveal prevailing lining anomalies, including spalling, leakage, dislocation and loss of pointing mortar between stones or bricks. Ground-penetrating radar and electrical resistivity imaging suggest that voids exist behind the lining in some areas, and that the water content of rock masses is high. Geodetic survey results show that although continual tunnel deformation produces irregular profiles, an inner boundary exists where masonry blocks crack and fall when surpassing this boundary. Investigation results indicate that the uniaxial compressive failure of bricks and stones accounts for the unusual damage pattern, and the squeezing deformation of the tunnel caused by weathered surrounding rocks is likely to be the cause of the continual spalling phenomena.
       
  • Geotechnical control of tunnel works in Hong Kong
    • Abstract: Hilly topography, intense urbanisation and infrastructure development, combined with limited land availability and a growing awareness of environmental issues, have driven Hong Kong's need to develop its underground space. By the end of 2012, about 460 km of tunnels had been constructed in Hong Kong. While private projects involving tunnel works have been subjected to statutory control to protect public safety for many years, geotechnical control of government tunnel works was only introduced through a government works policy instruction in 2005. This was one of the outcomes of a government review on the project implementation issues of a deep sewage tunnel project which encountered major construction problems due to adverse geology. The geotechnical control regime which was introduced took account of the development of geotechnical risk management internationally and notable tunnel failures both in Hong Kong and elsewhere. To facilitate geotechnical control, the Geotechnical Engineering Office of the Civil Engineering and Development Department has prepared technical references and guidance documents, including a catalogue of notable tunnel failure case histories. This paper traces the development of geotechnical control of tunnel works in Hong Kong, with a view to help in minimising the risk to life and property posed by construction of tunnel works.

  • Negotiation of poor ground in an undersea tunnel
    • Abstract: The 2⋅65 km Gwithian outfall tunnel formed part of the tunnelling operations under the ‘Clean Sweep’ sewage/sewerage distribution system upgrade within the south-west region of the UK during the 1990s. The 3⋅0 m high by 2⋅8 m wide, rectangular, tracked tunnel was constructed by Trafalgar House Construction using drill and blast techniques to intercept a series of pre-drilled diffuser units 25 m below the seabed in St Ives Bay. In view of the close proximity to the seabed, and the risk of water ingress, systematic probe drilling was performed at regular intervals during construction. Where necessary, in order to reduce the water-make to within pre-defined limits, cementitious grouting of the ground ahead of the advancing face was undertaken. One major fault zone required extensive grouting, as initial probe holes were making in the order of 200 gallons per minute (909 l/min). Tunnel advance through ‘exceptionally poor’ ground required modification to the excavation methodology and implementation of additional support measures. Evaluation of geotechnical data from the undersea tunnel suggests that the Q-system provided a sound basis for assessment of rock quality and for guidance on associated support requirements. Good correlation was obtained between mapped Q-values and tunnel advance rates. Importantly, engineering judgement informed final support recommendations.
