Date of Issue2003
School of Civil and Environmental Engineering
In the thesis, the TES system’s framework (matrix) is established with interaction mechanisms. The factors and parameters that affect tunnel engineering in terms of planning, design and construction are identified., and the interaction mechanisms amongst the factors are established. Expert Semi-Quantitative Method (ESQ) is used to convert descriptive matrix to quantified matrix that allows to study the relative importance of each parameter.
