For whatever tunneling challenges; for highways, rail, transit, or utilities, our team has a proven track record of engineering concrete durability designs from the simplest to the most complex tunnel projects. SIMCO combines its unique engineering know-how, its leading-edge predictive technologies and its experience on large or small tunnel projects to provide best-in-class durability design engineering solutions for all types of underground infrastructure. That’s how SIMCO makes a difference.
Produce, heat-cure, and test high-performance concrete mixtures that would be used to produce precast concrete tunnel lining elements
Determine the causes of the early-age cracking observed and provide mitigation strategies to ensure the long-term serviceability of the STM metro tunnels
Concrete mixture optimization to comply with durability requirements & a service life of 120 years for the Fehmarnbelt Tunnel between Germany & Denmark
SIMCO was hired to apply its materials durability expertise in developing different concrete mixtures in order to meet strict construction and durability requirements.
