  • Comment on: British Tunnelling Society to assess UK hyperloop viability

    Chelsea miner's comment 25 January, 2019 3:41 pm

    1 cost of tunnelling could be significantly reduced by halving tunnel diameters - ok so you can put one car thro the tunnel certainly not mass transit
    2 doubling the power of tunnel boring machines - for what?, the limiting factor is cutterhead revs, and muck removal - increase rev speed and you'd bake the head in the ground like a gypsy's hedgehog supper
    3 using a continuous excavation and lining process - we already do this - Channel Tunnel c. 1989

    Great stuff but nothing new about building at the same time as mucking, we did that on the UK side of the Channel Tunnel in 89/90.

  • Comment on: Incoming president puts diversity at heart of ICE tenure

    Chelsea miner's comment 7 November, 2018 8:47 am

    Why do journalists often default to women in engineering when reporting on diversity? The Chartered Management Institute's approach on diversity is as follows:
    "The concept of diversity encompasses any sort of difference between individuals. These could be differences in ethnic origin, age, disability, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, family status, religion, education, social class and even personality or attitudes. The management of diversity involves developing and
    implementing inclusive strategies through which a network of varied individuals are integrated into a dynamic workforce."
    I'm sure that this is what Ian meant in his statement and I wish him well in his role.

    “incomplete infrastructure and immature software systems which are “still in evolutionary stages”
