"Internationally, the mechanized excavation of tunnels has intensified within the final twenty years, because the variety of tunnels being built for subways and railway underpasses raises. the topic of mechanized tunnelling in, city components has now not formerly obtained the eye that it merits, regardless of there being particular risks linked to the development of tunnels in metropolitan parts, together with poor

Accurate characterization of the floor; rigorous review and administration of danger from layout to upkeep; the right kind selection of a tunnel uninteresting computer and a plan for the development of the tunnel; particular excavation systems and real-time tracking of excavation parameters are all mentioned during this thorough work."--Jacket.

8) led Sir B. H. Greathead to suggest a combined use of compressed air with the shield technology to support both the face and the tunnel profile (Fig. 9). This important improvement made possible to drive successfully 1130 m of tunnel by mid 1891 (when works were interrupted for economic reasons) and many other tunnels in following years. But improvements were still needed: several important problems were associated with working with compressed air, because the entire tunnel had to be maintained under pressure.

First successful applications of this face support technique were in Antwerp Dock tunnel (1879) and in the Hudson river tunnel, New York (1880). In particular, the failed attempt to drive the Hudson river with caisson and compressed air in 1880 (Fig. 8) led Sir B. H. Greathead to suggest a combined use of compressed air with the shield technology to support both the face and the tunnel profile (Fig. 9). This important improvement made possible to drive successfully 1130 m of tunnel by mid 1891 (when works were interrupted for economic reasons) and many other tunnels in following years.

6, three criteria were used for assessing the impact : (1) health, safety, and environmental impact during construction; (2) commercial impact (extra-cost for additional safety measures); and (3) health, safety and environmental impact during exploitation. By defining P and I, the risk, R, is defined as their product. Hence, construction, commercial, and operational risks are estimated separately (see Fig. 7). The resulting scale of risks (or risk matrix), with score rates from 1 to 25, is associated with a level of estimated risk (from irrelevant to unacceptable, see Fig.
