The safety, quality, efficiency and economic success of any tunnelling project is of utmost importance to every project planner and consulting company. With this in mind BabEng (formerly Babendererde Engineers) has developed three innovative software applications to support the tunnelling process.
Tunnelling Process Control
Real Time Data Management and Monitoring
Tunnelling is a complex process with many variables. With Tunnelling Process Control (TPC), all relevant data (positioning and operating data of the TBM, settlement and inclinometer measurements, quality management reports, etc.) are consolidated in real time and can be evaluated with clear graphics and diagrams at any time. The program has specifically been developed for international use in major projects and offers numerous application possibilities and safety functions. You can, for example, set individual limits for all measured data for which the program sends a warning message automatically.
The Online Face Support Calculator
An accurately calculated support pressure is essential for mechanized tunnelling in soft ground and is the only way to avoid ground breakup, increased settlements or other adverse effects. facesupport.org facilitates this calculation process and allows you to elaborate substantiated documents in a fast manner.

TPC - Segment Tracker
Having the ability to easily track segments throughout their lifecycles, from production through installation, is key in providing quality management and control of segmental linings on a project. TPC-ST is an all-inclusive tool for documenting segment history. Based on scanned identification and photo documentation using mobile devices, the system supports contractors and construction managers in locating segments, accepting deliveries, reporting damages and repair work, assigning segments to erected rings and producing required reports. This application can be used as a "stand-alone" or easily be integrated with TPC.
