In 2010, the Collaborative Research Center “Interaction Modeling in Mechanized Tunneling” (SFB 837) has been is established by the German Research Foundation (DFG) at Ruhr University Bochum. The SFB 837 is currently the largest research group conducting fundamental research in tunneling-related topics worldwide.
The research goals of the SFB 837 are concerned with various relevant planning and construction aspects of the many components of the mechanized tunneling process. This includes
the characterization and modeling of the in-situ ground and the disturbed ground conditions in...
