TACym Learning Series - Precast Concrete Tunnel Lining (PCTL)
The TAC Young Member’s Committee is excited to announce the return of the educational series for our members. Focused on introductory topics, the webinar series will strive to teach basic tunnelling themes not often taught in school but beneficial to those working in the industry. If you’re a student, just starting your career, or someone who likes to continually learn, then you’ll be sure to pick-up something new.


Our next topic will be the Precast Concrete Tunnel Lining (PCTL). Learn the parts of a segmental ring, their benefits over other lining types and how they are created. Typical loads, how engineers commonly design segments are discussed and reinforcement options are highlighted.
