Properties of foam/sand mixtures for tunnelling applications

Abstract:

This thesis presents experimental work on foam/sand mixtures carried out in the Civil Engineering Laboratory at Oxford University, as well as the findings associated with it. This research represents the preliminary stage of a research project on Soil Conditioning Agents in Pipe Jacking and Mechanised Tunnelling, sponsored by the Pipe Jacking Association (PJA) and three water companies. The experimental work was carried out in order to evaluate the fundamental soil properties of foamed sand, ...
