Nepal Tunnelling Association
INTRODUCTION
Nepal Tunnelling Association (NTA) is organizing first Nepal Tunnelling Conference 2014 on 19 December 2014. The main aim is to
gather all tunnel professionals and share experiences for development in Nepal through tunnelling.
Constructing tunnels and caverns in the tectonically active Himalayas is full of challenges and uncertainties. Therefore, sharing
experiences and knowledge from different underground projects is very important for the development of Hydro and Transport
Tunnels in the Nepal Himalayas.
This Conference is a great opportunity to share project experiences in Nepal regarding site investigations, design, construction
techniques, instrumentation and monitoring, back analysis of critical problems, alternate design and construction techniques, and
recent developments in the tunnelling industry.
NTA looks forward to organizing this Conference where it we can collaboratively look at advancing tunnelling and underground usage
and technology. Your participation, presentation of papers and case histories will contribute significantly to the success of this
Conference.
Nepal Tunnelling Association invites all Engineers, geologists and experts involved in underground construction industry to share
experiences and participate in this Conference.
