Report Title : Guide to Cavern Engineering (1992), 148 p. (Reprinted, 1998)

Author : Geotechnical Engineering Office


This Geoguide presents a recommended standard of good practice for the civil engineering aspects of rock cavern applications in Hong Kong. It will also serve as a reference document for non-specialists involved in the administration of cavern projects. Whilst the scope of the document is defined as the design and construction of rock caverns, much of the material presented here will be applicable to tunneling works.
