Tunnel Engineering Development in Taiwan
by Assoc. Prof An-Jui Li
Friday, 28th July 2023 // 7.00 - 8.30 pm
Taiwan is located at the junction of the Eurasian continental plate and the Pacific Ocean plate. The terrain is highly undulating, and the north-south direction of Taiwan is long and narrow, resulting in steep slopes and complicated geological conditions. Since the 1950s, tunnel engineering in Taiwan has gradually begun to develop. Over time, our focuses are moved from new constructions to other tunnel-related projects, such as tunnel line improvement, existing tunnel maintenance, and tunnel functional development. In addition to the generally considered safety issues, risk control has also received attention in recent years. This topic will give a brief introduction to the evolution of tunnel engineering in Taiwan. Afterwards, case studies will be used to introduce the more special construction methods and considerations for the recent tunnel constructions. Current tunnel engineering difficulties and challenges encountered in Taiwan will also be shared.
