The main objective of this study was to investigate the performance of a roadheader used for the excavation of Küçüksu Sewage Tunnel having a length of 1037.52 m. The tunnel is located in Anatolian part of Istanbul and constructed by STFA for Istanbul Water and Sewerage Administration (ISKI). Detailed statistical analysis showed that net advance rate of the roadheader is directly influenced by rock compressive strength, rock mass quality designation and water income. In the second stage of the… CONTINUE READING
