In this article, we describe the development of an expert system (ES) for tunnel design and present some applications of the system. The system consists of four subexpert systems: 1) ES for standard tunnel design methods, 2) ES for framed structure method, 3) ES for theoretical design methods, and 4) ES for numerical analysis design method; a common part to control the overall system; and two data base systems (tunnel data base system and rock mass data base system) . -from Authors
