25 years of research and development at the Institute of Rock Mechanics and Tunnelling at Graz University of Technology

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The Institute of Rock Mechanics and Tunnelling at the Graz University of Technology was founded in 1992. From the beginning, the primary focus of research and development was on Alpine tunnelling and slope stability issues, considering geological conditions and their impact on construction. The aim was to improve the current practice, as well as to reduce uncertainties. The research areas can be roughly grouped into rock mass characterization, improvement of monitoring data interpretation, ground behaviour assessment, as well as development and improvement of support elements. The research is documented in about 110 master theses and 30 doctoral theses, and approximately 350 papers.
