Investigation & Repair of Underground Structures

As the tunnels internationally and particularly in Europe become older, the matter of inspection, maintenance and repair adopts an ever increasing degree of importance. Generally Basements normally fail much earlier than the design service life. The failures discussed will include:

• Groundwater ingress
• Corrosion
• Post Tension failures
• Hydrostatic slab failure

The session will focus on how a proactive approach to maintenance, repair, and asset management is the most efficient way to extend and maintain the serviceability of these structures.
