Introduction

SUPERCON "Sprayed sUstainable PErmanent Robotized CONcrete tunnel lining"

SUPERCON aims to find solutions that make it possible to strengthen the "Norwegian way" of supporting tunnels as a time- and cost-effective tunnel concept, tailored to fit most rock conditions and variations in traffic density. Moreover, reduced materials consumption, sustainable raw materials and production methods will be key aspects to be considered.

Since Sprayed Concrete Lining (SCL) is one of the corner-stones in this tunnelling concept, it is therefore necessary to focus the research on the material properties and application techniques of sprayed concrete. Increased knowledge is needed in different working fields described on this webpage including  general information about the project.
