Vertical Shafts

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have been asked to participate in a team working on a system for
dewatering a hillside.  The dewatering system will include a fairly large
(perhaps 20 foot dia and a few hundred feet deep) vertical shaft.  The
structural system for the shaft is to be circular lattice girders plus
shotcrete.  I am looking for reference books and design guidelines for this
type of structural system.

Of course, if there is no electricity to run the pumps then we're sunk  : )
