Trimble has released a new Tunneling website to provide an overview of Trimble solutions across the tunneling project lifecycle including customer success stories, benefits, and Trimble products.
Tunnel projects start with defining the specifications and collecting data for the proposed tunnel design. Initial site surveys are performed using efficient GNSS and optical technology to provide designers and engineers detailed 3D topographic data.
During the Tunnel construction phase surveyors leverage Trimble total stations with Trimble Access field software to automate the layout of drill and blast holes gaining productivity and keeping the construction process on time.
Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) manufacturers can integrate Trimble instruments into their existing systems to benefit from the robust survey sensors and tacking capability.
Trimble’s 24/7 real-time monitoring systems are installed above the tunnel alignment to continually measure crucial infrastructure that may be affected by the construction below.
In the office, displacement reports are generated to detect movement trends in the tunnel profile for informed decision making, and ensure tunnels are being built to design specifications.
Once completed, inspections of tunnel infrastructure using Trimble 3D laser scanning and mobile mapping systems provide detailed information on asset positions and integrity.
