Since 2017, with the joining of Dr. Alex Koren to Pakatz Engineering Ltd. As head of the department, Pakatz engineering practices in the design of mined tunnels.
Here are the main services of the tunneling department:
Structural design of mined tunnels in different methods such as TBM, NATM, tunnels in incremental launching method and so forth…
Inspection of the site from a geomechanical point of view.
Static and dynamic calculations of the structure of the tunnel with interaction with the ground based on the analysis of final elements of the structure in full 2D and 3D modeling.
Particular design including execution stages and work methods in accordance to the construction method.
Execution instructions including assessment of the situation, monitoring, following and analyzing the stability of the tunnels during the execution.
Design control, opinion, etc…
