Handbook of Precast Segmental Tunnel Lining Systems

A new comprehensive handbook – Handbook of Precast Tunnel Lining Systems – covers all aspects of design, production, and construction of precast concrete tunnel segmental lining, with the best practices in the field included in one book for the first time. The book is edited by Verya Nasri, David Klug, Brian Fulcher, and James A. Morrison.

New and current design methods and quantitative analyses are considered in line with ACI and ASTM codes, as well as a full selection of global standards for the reliable design of the product and all components. Also incorporated are new applications of science and technology, such as new admixtures, and the latest manufacturing processes and precisions, such as tight dimensional controls and high repeatability cycles.

With detailed guidance from world-leading practitioners, this is the definitive international technical and practical manual on these linings, forming a one-stop reference for tunnel engineers and an invaluable resource for advanced students in civil, mechanical, and mining engineering.
