The Boring Company

Recently, Seismic Mechatronics posted a message and a paper about using our electromechanical seismic sources to look ahead of a tunnel boring machine (TBM) using low frequency signals and FWI. In a large EU subsidized project, we showed it is possible to produce a seismic image of the subsurface in front of a TBM within one…

Full waveform inversion to Look Ahead of a Tunnel Boring Machine

The near surface geophysics (Vol. 15, Nr 3, June '17) published, Seismic Mechatronics' (with amongst others the TU Delft) paper about using a shear-wave source and full wave form inversion to look ahead of a tunnel boring machine. Abstract: The Earth’s properties, composition and structure ahead of a tunnel boring machine (TBM) should be mapped for…
