Field Pressuremeter Tests for the Taiwan High Speed Rail Contract C220 Tunnel Sections

The main objective of this project is to perform a series of pressuremeter tests in a soft rock formation, for the tunnel sections of contract C220,that passes through Hsin-Puh and Bao-Shan townships. Results of these tests will be used by the design engineers to analyze the in situ stress and determine the engineering properties for the soft rocks for the purpose of tunnel design.
