Tunnelling and Mining excavations have the same engineering processes, although they have different purposes within the scope of underground excavations. In tunnelling and mining activities, various similar engineering solutions are managed, such as drilling and blasting, mechanized excavation, ventilation, support, geotechnical, rock mechanics, transportation, and groundwater management.
The 900-meter mine well opened in Soma/Manisa and the 60-meter tunnel shaft opened in the city center in Beşiktaş/Istanbul, the rise drift in the mine and the staircase tunnel excavation in the metro tunnel will be evaluated scientifically and technically from different perspectives at the Underground Excavations Symposium.
Machinery and equipment produced for tunnelling and mining and engineering solutions have similar characteristics. In this respect, the UYAK Symposium is a platform that brings together the tunnelling and mining sectors.
