Digital Optimisation of Underground Rail Projects30m
Using Automated Design for Optimisation of Tunnel Alignment30m
This presentation will discuss the contributions that automation in detailed design can make in developing options for tunnel alignments ensuring that constraints are satisfied whilst also maximising aspirations such as keeping the projected construction cost as low as possible. The presentation will demonstrate the automated design technology and how tunnel sections can automatically be checkedy. Automation of settlement damage assessments will also be demonstrated.
Contract management of underground works using combined GIS, 3D geological and BIM models30m
The latest in modern technology in combination with innovative software ensures has opened new venues of contract (claims) management. Amberg is presenting the case of the Monte Ceneri on how this saved 14 million CHF to owner. This includes how the models can be combined on a single platform in the Case of the 3dExperience platform by Dassault systems, notably in alignment optimisation with respect to geological conditions.
Use of Artificial Intelligence in Tunnel Infrastructure Management30m
Atkins has been actively testing and developing state of the art AI technology in tunnels and other infrastructure maintenance, including machine learning, drone inspections and AI objection recognition
Distributed Fibre Optic Sensing of Underground Infrastructures30m
This presentation will briefly introduce two case studies of fibre optic strain monitoring in underground infrastructures: 1) monitoring of retaining wall structure performance due to deep excavation in London Paddington Station; 2) monitoring and analysis of long-term tunnel behaviour at CERN.
The Effective and Efficient Management of Tunnel Asset Data30m
Tunnel Information Management (TIM), an in-house product developed by London Bridge Associates (LBA) has been driving improvements in managing tunnel asset data since 2001. However, never content with standing still, we are now developing TIM for Tasking (TFT), an assets and actions database.
Railway tunnel overburden imaging using muon transmission radiography30m
Cosmic rays are a natural background radiation produced in collisions by primary particles from space with the Earth's upper atmosphere. Cosmic ray muons are highly penetrating, typically able to pass through many metres of rock, and are well suited to imaging the interior of thick man-made or natural structures. Recently we have performed the first field trial of a portable cosmic ray tracking system developed to provide radiographic measurements of the overburden of UK railway tunnels. In this talk we will report on this initial field trial, before discussing recent developments made to study density anomalies at a higher resolution, and over longer timescales.
Accelerating Digital Change: I&M and Operations30m
An overview of the development of digital tools and strategies which have made advancements in smart monitoring, machine learning and operational performance across major tunnelling projects across the world, at the operations and monitoring stage.

Tunnel Maintenance 4.0 - High efficiency maintenance thanks to innovative 3D data capture technologies and use of AI30m
The latest in modern technology in combination with innovative software ensures a high efficient and objective inspection and monitoring of tunnel infrastructure. Amberg is presenting workflows for 3D reality capture using multi sensor platforms, data analyses with Artificial Intelligence and real-time monitoring to get all relevant information around the clock. A Digital Twin of the facilities and the use of connected cloud-based solution will help to manage and maintain tunnels in a smart way.
