Tunneling Resources

Tunneling is one of the most important applications for Rocscience software – from preliminary design to the detailed analysis of complex tunnel support systems. A wide spectrum of problems can be analyzed, including tunneling in soft ground, tunneling in jointed rock, near surface cut and cover, and deep tunnels in yielded rock.
