Tunneling International Symposium, Turkey's objectives, planning, design, management, monitoring and measuring, testing, modeling, which focuses on the classical to discuss various issues related to research and development and mechanized tunneling. The interests of the symposium are as follows, but not limited to:

  • Design, planning and use of underground structures
  • Land and laboratory investigations, soil and rock experiments
  • Geological and geotechnical reporting
  • Classical tunneling, New Austrian Tunneling Method (NATM)
  • Pipe arch and other land pre-reinforcement applications
  • Shotcrete, wire mesh, steel support / shoring applications
  • Drilling and blasting applications and vibrations in urban areas
  • Excavation, support, transportation, ventilation and water discharge (drainage) applications
  • New (fast) excavation technologies, selection, design and performance
  • Full-fronted tunnel boring machines (TBMs)
  • Arm gallery opening machines (roadheader) and impact / hydraulic breakers
  • Logistics (back up) units in new (fast) excavation technologies
  • Mobilization, portals, tail injection (void grouting)
  • Pasa-ground conditioning, slurry conditioning
  • Risk analysis and management, organization, tender types-processes, costs
  • Environmental impacts, land deformations, geotechnical measurements and monitoring
  • Pre-drilling, ground improvement, jet grouting
  • Occupational health and safety in underground excavations
  • Works after excavation, electromechanical, signalization, fire monitoring
  • Maintenance, repair, and rehabilitation of underground structures
  • Mega tunnel applications, tunneling applications in mine preparation works

Dear participants, we look forward to sending you a summary about the various themes of the symposium. Abstracts should be minimum 300 and maximum 500 words; title, author names and institutions and e-mail addresses should be specified. The official language of the symposium is English. All presentations will be translated simultaneously into Turkish.
