shield tunnelling in soft ground

Tunnelling shield - Wikipedia

A tunnelling shield is a protective structure used during the excavation of large, man-made tunnels.When excavating through ground that is soft, liquid, or otherwise unstable, there is a risk to workers and the project itself from falling materials and/or a cave-in.
