     Special Issue on Tunnel Engineering


    Tunnels play a critical role in the ongoing delivery and maintenance of the transport infrastructure required to support our modern world. As well as connecting communities, our road and rail tunnels provide pivotal links to support ongoing population growth by allowing people and freight to move more freely across our road and transport networks.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on exploring tunnel engineering. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:


    • Cut and cover tunnels
    • Immersed tunnels
    • Hard rock tunneling
    • Soft ground tunneling
    • Constructability & cost estimating
    • Construction management
    • Mechanical & electrical
    • Risk and safety
    • Inspection and rehabilitation


    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly specify the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title. The research field “Special Issue – Tunnel Engineering” should be selected during your submission.
