Tunnel feasibility study

Tunnel feasibility study

Tunnel feasibility study

I am to write a tunnel feasibility study for a hard rock tunnel in New Zealand.
What makes for a good tunnel feasibility study?
What should I include in the report and in how much detail?

Can anyone provide advice on the the report outline e.g. a typical contents page, or a publication that explains how to compile a feasibility study for a major engineering project?

Thank you.

RE: Tunnel feasibility study


There is a publication by ASCE in 1997 called "Geotechnical Baseline Reports for Underground Construction".  It may give you some of the information you need.  It also has a listing of contributors and reviewers with their affiliations.  People on that list could help you.
