Tunnelling: Project Reports

Please see various projects where V-ROD GFRP reinforcing is used in "soft-eye" tunnelling applications in reinforcing slurry walls or caissons. Due to its lower modulus of elasticity, V-ROD can be cut through by the tunnel boring machines (TBM's) and will not destry expensive cutter heads as it the case with steel reinforcing.
