The use of TBM tunnel boring machine gradually increases in worldwide tunneling projects.

For Glendoe hydro-electric scheme in Scotland, the tunnelling contract was design—build. After a year, the tunnel collapsed, blocking a m length, which necessitated construction of a by-pass tunnel. The responsibility for the collapse was examined in court and the findings were later appealed by a further three judges. It is considered that the Owner of the tunnel, Scottish Southern Electricity took on the risk by agreeing to a TBM-constructed, mostly unlined tunnel rather than a drill and blasted, fully lined tunnel as had been postulated at tender. The Contractor, Hochtief, constructed the tunnel and lined it in accordance with a Rock Excavation Classification design sheet that was agreed by all parties and approved by the Engineer.

DOI: The thesis focuses on the study of the performance of TBMs in highly jointed and faulted rocks. Despite the great production rates recorded in favourable ground conditions, the TBM advance can be significantly slowed down in limiting geological situations such as extremely fractured and fault zones.

A tunnel boring machine TBM , also known as a "mole", is a machine used to excavate tunnels with a circular cross section through a variety of soil and rock strata. They may also be used for microtunneling. They can be designed to bore through anything from hard rock to sand. Tunnel diameters can range from one metre 3. Tunnels of less than a metre or so in diameter are typically done using trenchless construction methods or horizontal directional drilling rather than TBMs. TBMs can also be designed to excavate non-circular tunnels, including u-shaped or horseshoe and square or rectangular tunnels. TBMs have the advantages of limiting the disturbance to the surrounding ground and producing a smooth tunnel wall.
One of the most important aspects in the excavation of tunnels with a Tunnel Boring Machine TBM is the reliable prediction of its penetration rate. This affects the planning and other decision making on the organization of the construction site of the tunneling project, and, therefore, total costs. In this study, raw data obtained from the experimental works of different researchers were used to establish the new statistical models for prediction of rock TBM penetration rate from brittleness indexes, B 1 , B 2 , and B 3. For this, correlation between the TBM penetration rate with brittleness indexes statistically was investigated using multiple regression analyses. In these analyses, the TBM penetration rate was considered to be the dependent variable, which is dependent on the independent variables of the brittleness indexes. The validity of the predictive models was validated by statistical tests.
