Abstract:

A study was made to determine the feasibility of collecting information on the construction of underground works, especially those of the last twenty years. The gathering and quantitizing of this type of information was performed for the Oregon and Washington areas as a pilot project. During the first phase, data was collected about the geology, design, construction and performance of existing underground rock excavations and was tabulated in a data bank. To date, all information contained in the general data forms for 256 projects have been entered into the computer. The second phase of the study involved the evaluation of data available with special reference to those items of design and construction affecting supports. An attempt was made to obtain an overview of each project and see how the separate phases of exploration, design, construction and inspection blended in order to form a finished project.
