The construction of the power waterway for high-head hydro-power plants is generally one of the most expensive project parts. The costs are especially high when a steel lined tunnel is needed. Extension of concrete lined sections is therefore of special interest and a topic of active research. Extending the usage of concrete lining beyond the usual design practice requires a new design model.
A project investigating this topic will be carried out at UNESCO-IHE and includes one PhD position. This advertisement concerns the PhD position at UNESCO‐IHE and the research topic entitled Coupled stress-seepage numerical design of concrete lined pressure tunnels.
