SUB STRUCTURE CONSTUCTION 15HRS SUB STRUCTURE CONSTRUCTION Pipe Jacking method In a situation where the sewerage pipes have to be laid in deeper ground (3 to 7 meters),the pipe jacking method will be adopted. This method not only minimizes the digging of the trench to lay the new pipes but also alleviates disruption to the public. . To form the pipe jacking or pipe omm receiving station, a temporary shaft will ..c o be set up at the proposed new manhole ll c location. au au 2. The soil in the temporary shaft is excavated ejj np iinp 3. The pipe jacking machine is then set up at the base of the shaft. Upon confirmation of the alignment, the roller cutter at the ..rre face of the cutting head machine cuts the soil in front of it. www 4. The excavated soil is then fed to the crusher through a pipe and further crushed to w smaller pieces, after which it is transported up to the ground surface in a fluid form usingww a slurry pump. 5. The excavated soil in slurry form is treated by passing it through a number of screens. 6. The dry spoil is then removed from site, so as to keep the works area clean. 7. The new pipe is lowered in sections behind the cutting head machine and gradually pushed behind the cutting head machine into the area excavated. The excavation and pipe installation cycle continues until the cutting head machine reaches the receiving station with the new pipeline laid behind it. 8. A new manhole structure is then constructed in the receiving shaft. 9. Once the manhole construction is completed, the temporary shaft is backfilled and surrounding area reinstated.
  11. 11. © Einstein College of Engineering 10. Finally the manhole is cleaned and inspected by the relevant agency for handing over and commissioning of the new line. Pipe Jacking, also known as pipejacking or pipe-jacking, is a method of tunnel construction where hydraulic jacks are used to push specially made pipes through the ground behind a tunnel boring machine or shield. This technique is commonly used to create tunnels under existing structures, such as roads or railways. Tunneling Tunnel Basics A tunnel is a horizontal passageway located underground. While erosion and other forces of nature can form tunnels, in this article well talk about man made tunnels -- tunnels created by the process of excavation. There are many different ways to excavate a tunnel, including manual labor, explosives, rapid heating and cooling, tunneling machinery or a combination of these methods omm Types of Tunnels ..c o 1. Mine tunnels ll c 2. Public works tunnels au Mine tunnels are used during ore extraction, enabling laborers or equipment to access au mineral and metal deposits deep inside the earth. These tunnels are made using similar np iinp techniques as other types of tunnels, but they cost less to build. Mine tunnels are not as safe as tunnels designed for permanent occupation, however. ejj Public works tunnels carry water, sewage or gas lines across great distances. The ..rre earliest tunnels were used to transport water to, and sewage away from, heavily populated w regions. Roman engineers used an extensive network of tunnels to help carry water from ww mountain springs to cities and villages. These tunnels were part of aqueduct systems,ww w which also comprised underground chambers and sloping bridge-like structures supported by a series of arches. By A.D. 97, nine aqueducts carried approximately 85 million gallons of water a day from mountain springs to the city of Rome. Before there were trains and cars, there were transportation tunnels such as canals -- artificial waterways used for travel, shipping or irrigation. Just like railways and roadways today, canals usually ran above ground, but many required tunnels to pass efficiently through an obstacle, such as a mountain. Canal construction inspired some of the worlds earliest tunnels. The Underground Canal, located in Lancashire County and Manchester, England, was constructed from the mid- to late-1700s and includes miles of tunnels to house the underground canals. One of Americas first tunnels was the Paw Paw Tunnel, built in West Virginia between 1836 and 1850 as part of the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal.
  12. 12. © Einstein College of Engineering Although the canal no longer runs through the Paw Paw, at 3,118 feet long it is still one of the longest canal tunnels in the United States. omm Photo courtesy Eric and Edith Matson Photograph ..c o Collection/Library of Congress Prints and Photographs ll c Division au au A Roman aqueduct that runs from the Pools of Solomon to Jerusalem np iinp ejj w ..rrewwww w Photo courtesy Kmf164/ Creation Commons Attribution Share-alike License Traveling through the Holland Tunnel from Manhattan to New Jersey
  13. 13. © Einstein College of Engineering By the 20th century, trains and cars had replaced canals as the primary form of transportation, leading to the construction of bigger, longer tunnels. The Holland Tunnel, completed in 1927, was one of the first roadway tunnels and is still one of the worlds greatest engineering projects. Named for the engineer who oversaw construction, the tunnel ushers nearly 100,000 vehicles daily between New York City and New Jersey. Tunnel construction takes a lot of planning. Well explore why in the next section. Tunneling technique Principal Benefits The principal benefits of jacked box tunneling are:   omm A non-intrusive construction method ..c o Minimal disturbance to surface infrastructure ll c  Traffic flows maintained throughout the construction period au  Traffic flows maintained with only minor restrictions during box installation au  An efficient structural form incorporating a low bearing pressure foundation np  iinp A high quality maintenance free structure ejj Historical development w ..rre Jacked box tunneling in the UK developed from the. pipe jacking of the mid-1960s ww Initially, small precast concrete boxes were jacked to form pedestrian subways and w portal bridge foundations. Later small boxes were jacked one on top Of another and filledww with concrete to form bridge abutments. In recent years, the development of high capacity jacking equipment and sophisticated techniques for controlling ground disturbance has led to the jacking of very large boxes each Capable of accommodating a highway, railway or flood defense channel. Several large box structures have now been installed in a wide variety of ground conditions. Anti-drag systems Referring to Fig. 1b, it can be seen that as the box is jacked forward it will tend to drag the ground along with it. In the case of a wide box at shallow cover the mass of ground on top of the box could be dragged forward, causing major disturbance and possible disruption to the infrastructure above. Similarly, the underside of the box will tend to drag and Shear the ground, resulting in remolding accompanied by a loss in volume that will cause the box to dive. These effects are minimized by the use of a proprietary anti-drag system (ADS) at the top and bottom of the box.
  14. 14. © Einstein College of Engineering Jacked box tunneling The method in outline Jacked box tunneling is a non-intrusive method for constructing a new under-bridge, culvert or subway beneath existing surface infrastructure, for example railways and highways. The method enables traffic flows to be maintained throughout the construction period, and maintained with only minor restrictions during the brief period of tunneling. The inconvenience and costs of disruption to infrastructure and traffic flows experienced with traditional construction methods can be avoided. An example of the method is illustrated simply in Fig. 1. An open ended reinforced concrete box is cast on a jacking base adjacent to a railway embankment, see Fig. 1a. A purpose designed tunneling shield is provided at its leading end, and thrust jacks are provided at its rear end reacting against a jacking slab. The box is then jacked slowly omm through the ground under the railway in a carefully controlled tunneling operation, see ..c o Fig. 1b. Excavation and jacking take place alternately in small increments of advance. ll c Measures are taken to ensure stability of the tunnel face and to prevent the ground from au being dragged forward by the advancing box. When the box has reached its final position, au Fig. 1c, the shield and jacking equipment are removed, and bridge construction is np completed with the addition of wing walls and road pavement. iinp ejj ..rre ww wwww

  16. 16. © Einstein College of Engineering om ..c om au au ll c np iinp Tunnel Construction: Soft Ground and Hard Rock ejj Workers generally use two basic techniques to advance a tunnel. In the full-face method, ..rre they excavate the entire diameter of the tunnel at the same time. This is most suitable for tunnels passing through strong ground or for building smaller tunnels. The second www technique, shown in the diagram below, is the top-heading-and-bench method. In this w technique, workers dig a smaller tunnel known as a heading. Once the top heading haswwadvanced some distance into the rock, workers begin excavating immediately below the floor of the top heading; this is a bench. One advantage of the top-heading-and-bench method is that engineers can use the heading tunnel to gauge the stability of the rock before moving forward with the project. Notice that the diagram shows tunneling taking place from both sides. Tunnels through mountains or underwater are usually worked from the two opposite ends, or faces, of the passage. In long tunnels, vertical shafts may be dug at intervals to excavate from more than two points. Now lets look more specifically at how tunnels are excavated in each of the four primary environments: soft ground, hard rock, soft rock and underwater. Soft Ground (Earth) Workers dig soft-ground tunnels through clay, silt, sand, gravel or mud. In this type of
  17. 17. © Einstein College of Engineering tunnel, stand-up time -- how long the ground will safely stand by itself at the point of excavation -- is of paramount importance. Because stand-up time is generally short when tunneling through soft ground, cave-ins are a constant threat. To prevent this from happening, engineers use a special piece of equipment called a shield. A shield is an iron or steel cylinder literally pushed into the soft soil. It carves a perfectly round hole and supports the surrounding earth while workers remove debris and install a permanent lining made of cast iron or precast concrete. When the workers complete a section, jacks push the shield forward and they repeat the process. Marc Isambard Brunel, a French engineer, invented the first tunnel shield in 1825 to excavate the Thames Tunnel in London, England. Brunels shield comprised 12 connected frames, protected on the top and sides by heavy plates called staves. He divided each frame into three workspaces, or cells, where diggers could work safely. A wall of short timbers, or breasting boards, separated each cell from the face of the tunnel. A digger would remove a breasting board, carve out three or four inches of clay m and replace the board. When all of the diggers in all of the cells had completed this om ..c o process on one section, powerful screw jacks pushed the shield forward au au ll c np iinp ejj w ..rrewwww w .
  18. 18. © Einstein College of Engineering om ..c om au au ll c np iinp In 1874, Peter M. Barlow and James Henry Greathead improved on Brunels design by ejj constructing a circular shield lined with cast-iron segments. They first used the newly- ..rre designed shield to excavate a second tunnel under the Thames for pedestrian traffic. Then, in 1874, the shield was used to help excavate the London Underground, the worlds www first subway. Greathead further refined the shield design by adding compressed air w pressure inside the tunnel. When air pressure inside the tunnel exceeded water pressurewwoutside, the water stayed out. Soon, engineers in New York, Boston, Budapest and Paris had adopted the Greathead shield to build their own subways. Hard Rock Tunneling through hard rock almost always involves blasting. Workers use a scaffold, called a jumbo, to place explosives quickly and safely. The jumbo moves to the face of the tunnel, and drills mounted to the jumbo make several holes in the rock. The depth of the holes can vary depending on the type of rock, but a typical hole is about 10 feet deep and only a few inches in diameter. Next, workers pack explosives into the holes, evacuate the tunnel and detonate the charges. After vacuuming out the noxious fumes created during the explosion, workers can enter and begin carrying out the debris, known as muck, using carts. Then they repeat the process, which advances the tunnel slowly through the rock.
  19. 19. © Einstein College of Engineering Fire-setting is an alternative to blasting. In this technique, the tunnel wall is heated with fire, and then cooled with water. The rapid expansion and contraction caused by the sudden temperature change causes large chunks of rock to break off. The Cloaca Maxima, one of Romes oldest sewer tunnels, was built using this technique. The stand-up time for solid, very hard rock may measure in centuries. In this environment, extra support for the tunnel roof and walls may not be required. However, most tunnels pass through rock that contains breaks or pockets of fractured rock, so engineers must add additional support in the form of bolts, sprayed concrete or rings of steel beams. In most cases, they add a permanent concrete lining. Well look at tunnel driving through soft rock and driving underwater next Other tunneling methods include:  Drilling and blasting  Slurry-shield machine  omm Wall-cover construction method. ..c o ll c Other uses au au Excavation techniques, as well as the construction of underground bunkers and other habitable areas, are often associated with military use during armed conflict, or civilian np iinp responses to threat of attack. The use of tunnels for mining is called drift mining. One of ejj the strangest uses of a tunnel was for the storage of chemical weapons ..rre Natural tunnel w ww  Natural Tunnel State Park (Virginia, USA) features an 850 feet (259 m) naturalww w  tunnel, really a limestone cave, that has been used as a railroad tunnel since 1890. Punarjani Guha Kerala, India. Hindus believe that crawling through the tunnel (which they believe was created by a Hindu god) from one end to the other will wash away all of one’s sins and thus attain rebirth, although only men are permitted to crawl through the cave. Snow tunnels are created by voles, chipmunks and other rodents for protection and access to food sources. Larger versions are created by humans, usually for fun. For more information regarding tunnels built by animals, see Burrow Temporary Way During construction of a tunnel it is often convenient to install a temporary railway particularly to remove spoil. This temporary railway is often narrow gauge so that it can be double track, which facilitates the operation of empty and loaded trains at the same
  20. 20. © Einstein College of Engineering time. The temporary way is replaced by the permanent way at completion, thus explaining the term Perway. The diagram below shows the relationship between these underground structures in a typical mountain tunnel. The opening of the tunnel is a portal. The "roof" of the tunnel, or the top half of the tube, is the crown. The bottom half is the invert. The basic geometry of the tunnel is a continuous arch. Because tunnels must withstand tremendous pressure from all sides, the arch is an ideal shape. In the case of a tunnel, the arch simply goes all the way around om ..c om au au ll c np iinp ejj w ..rrewwww w Diaphragm Walls A diaphragm wall is a reinforced concrete wall constructed in the ground using under slurry techniques. Walls with widths of between 300mm and 1500mm can be formed in this way to depths in excess of 60 meters. Positive Features  Walls can be installed to considerable depths  Walls with substantial thickness can be formed

Diaphragm walls are necessary :  omm in very unstable soil profiles below the water-table where continuous support and ..c o watertight conditions are required to prevent mud flows, piping and erosion of the ll c soils;  where construction time is important and the use of a diaphragm wall can shorten au au the programme;  in conditions where deeper than normal cantilever support may be required. These np iinp conditions could occur where the wall is to act only as a cantilever, or where a ejj very deep initial excavation is required before the first braced or tie-back supports can be installed. w ..rre ww Diaphragm wall is a kind of retaining wall which appropriate for using in a limited area w of work and better protection than the "Sheet Pile" type.

  24. 24. © Einstein College of Engineering SHORING Shoring is the process of placing props against the side of a structure, or beneath or above anything, to prevent sinking or sagging. During and after battle, ships may have occasion to support ruptured decks, to strengthen weakened bulkheads, to build up temporary bulkheads against the sea, to support hatches and doors, and to provide props for equipment that has broken loose. This is done largely by shoring. A shore is a portable beam. A wedge is a block, triangular on the sides and rectangular on the butt end. A shole is a flat plate which may be placed under the end of a shore to distribute weight or pressure. A strongback is a bar or beam, often shorter than a shore, and used to distribute pressure or to serve as an anchor for a patch over a hole. Any of the foregoing items can be made of metal or of wood.
