How proper analyzation of tunnel boring machine data lowers risk, increases safety, and optimizes resources throughout the construction phase

 

In December/January issue, monthly columnist Keivan Rafie walks you through the importance of tunnel boring machine (TBM) data monitoring. As TBMs grow in size and are being used in more challenging and uncertain ground conditions, data interpretation by experienced engineers is what is going to make or break a tunneling project. Being able to harness the powerful data your TBM is telling you is the difference between ensuring efficient and productive tunneling operations.
