Überblick:Pressestimmen '... provides an in-depth look at all aspects of this special system used to create underground space beneath waterways. ... clear and understandable step-by-step explanation of all the stages in the creation of a tunnel project giving clear descriptions of the various choices and requirements from initial concept through realization and on through operation and maintenance. ... The authors use their considerable worldwide expertise and knowledge of the process to give the reader an insight into the possible problems that may occur and should be guarded against and provide a full picture of all the decisions and processes required to bring a project to a successful conclusion. ... the book will provide engineers with a comprehensive library of all aspects of the process ... essential reading for anyone interested in this innovative approach to crossing waterways.'--David Court C.Eng FICE Bam Nuttall UK 'This book is a very good way to bring immersed tunnels into the spotlight in such a way that this tunnel technique will be regarded by decision makers as a competitive option to cross waterways.'--Hans de Wit Tunnel Engineering Consultants The Netherlands 'The different aspects of planning and construction of an immersed tunnel are written in a very informative and descriptive way with project examples helping first-time planners developers and consultants to get an excellent overview. For the more experienced planners designers and contractors it gives valuable references to projects and lessons learned.'--Michael Tonnesen COWI A/S Denmark 'Highly professional engineering told in an understandable way based on many years' experience. ... The book will be useful for engineers clients and students.'--Ole Peter Jensen Chief Advisor and Immersed Tunnel Expert Ramboll Denmark 'The contents covers all aspects that I would hope to see in a book on the design and construction of immersed tunnels. ... This is an outstanding book that should be read by all engineers that are involved in the design and/or construction of immersed tunnels. Even the most experienced engineers will find nuggets of information that the authors have gleaned through many years implementing immersed tunnel projects around the world. It also provides a good introduction to engineers that are new to this technique with its wide coverage of the subject.'--John Busby FICE FIStructE Operations Director Capita Symonds Limited UK 'This is a brilliant introduction and thorough run-through of the complexities of immersed tube tunnels.' --Lasse Vester in ITA Yong Members Magazine '... this comprehensive book on all aspects of developing an immersed tunnel project is a very much-needed resource and should be welcomed by planners and designers worldwide. It is written by two fine engineers ... I therefore believe that this book will be found to be a very useful reference for civil engineers in the process of developing an immersed subsea tunnel project for the first time or even for those engineers already experienced in some of the immersed tunnel methods but who are facing a new project with unusual site conditions or constraints.'--From the Foreword by Walter C. Grantz PE immersed tunnel consultant Virginia Beach USA Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende Richard Lunniss is director of civil engineering at Capita Symonds.Jonathan Baber is a project director at Mott MacDonald and vice animateur of the International Tunnelling Association Working Group for Immersed and Floating Tunnels.Lunniss and Baber have been extensively involved over 25- and 20-year periods respectively in the design and construction of immersed tunnels worldwide. Their completed schemes include:Conwy Tunnel (UK)Medway Tunnel (UK)Jack Lynch Tunnel (Cork Ireland)Airport Railway Tunnel (Hong Kong)Preveza Tunnel (Greece)Øresund Tunnel (Copenhagen Denmark)Fort Point Channel Tunnel (Boston USA)Bjørvika Tunnel (Oslo Norway)Limerick Tunnel (Ireland)They have also undertaken feasibility and tender designs for several other immersed tunnel projects and given advice to funders on PFI schemes.
