How to design and construct an immersed tunnel to be watertight, London

Watch this event

Immersed tunneling has been around for a long time and is a perfect example of how Rubber, Steel and Concrete complement each other. Rubber is a unique material with unique properties perfectly suited for creating watertight joints over a long period of time.

This presentation is about how to design a rubber product that can solve the most demanding technical challenges - What to consider and what to know before a solution is made and practically applied. The talk will cover the history of immersed tunneling and address the specific challenges rubber has in the field of sealing, both in the short and long terms.

As an example Joel will go through the process of designing, testing and applying seals for an immersed tunnel.
