Description
Tunnel boring machines (TBM) are used to excavate tunnels with a circular cross section through a variety of geologies. They can be used to bore through hard rock or sand or almost anything in between. Tunnel diameters can range from a metre (done with micro-TBMs) to more than 14 metres. The biggest one was built for the New Elbe Tunnel in Hamburg.
