  • Đây không phải dạng Map nói về sự thay đổi của tunnel mà nó là 2 tunnels hoàn toàn tách biệt nhau nhé 
  • Đối với dạng process 2 biểu đồ để làm cho nhanh và dành thời gian cho task 2 có thể chia bố cục dễ nhất là:
    • Overall: Chọn  1-2 trong  các  ý  sau:  
      • There are a number of differences between the two tunnel systems, in terms of the cost, size, length, time of construction, and the surrounding environment. hoặc 
      • 1st tunnel was constructed far before 2nd tunnel at a lower cost, and therefore its length, width and traffic capacity are lower.   >> IELTS  TUTOR  hướng  dẫn  Cách dùng danh từ "difference" tiếng anh
      • While 1st tunnel is to connect two parts of a city, 2nd tunnel’s function is to lower traffic density.
    • Body 1: viết về diagram số 1: có thể tham khảo các thông tin sau:
      • The first tunnel, which took twelve years to construct between 1986 and 1998, cost $555 million, and was built underneath a body of water and sand (hoặc 1st tunnel was built in the period between 1987 and 1992, which cost 556 million dollars, to connect two parts of this city below a bridge with a thick layer of stone and sand above)
      • The first tunnel was 1.5 meters high and 2.2km long (hoặc The total length is 2.2 kilometers and it is 25 meters under the ground)
      • The first tunnel system is four lanes wide
    • Body 2: viết về diagram số 2
      • The second tunnel only took four years for completion but cost $1.1 billion, and was constructed beneath a layer of stone and clay.  >> IELTS  TUTOR  hướng  dẫn  phân biệt expenditure, consumption, expense, price
      • The second tunnel is 2.5m high and 3.6 km long 
      • The second tunnel system is six lanes wide.

Roman tunnels

The Romans, who once controlled areas of Europe, North Africa and Asia Minor, adopted the construction techniques of other civilizations to build tunnels in their territories >> IELTS TUTOR hướng dẫn Cách dùng động từ "adopt" tiếng anh

The Persians, who lived in present-day Iran, were one of the first civilizations to build tunnels that provided a reliable supply of water to human settlements in dry areas. In the early first millennium BCE, they introduced the qanat method of tunnel construction, which consisted of placing posts over a hill in a straight line, to ensure that the tunnel kept to its route, and then digging vertical shafts down into the ground at regular intervals. Underground, workers removed the earth from between the ends of the shafts, creating a tunnel. The excavated soil was taken up to the surface using the shafts, which also provided ventilation during the work. Once the tunnel was completed, it allowed water to flow from the top of a hillside down towards a canal, which supplied water for human use. Remarkably, some qanats built by the Persians 2,700 years ago are still in use today.

They later passed on their knowledge to the Romans, who also used the qanat method to construct water-supply tunnels for agriculture. Roman qanat tunnels were constructed with vertical shafts dug at intervals of between 30 and 60 meters. The shafts were equipped with handholds and footholds to help those climbing in and out of them and were covered with a wooden or stone lid. To ensure that the shafts were vertical, Romans hung a plumb line from a rod placed across the top of each shaft and made sure that the weight at the end of it hung in the center of the shaft. Plumb lines were also used to measure the depth of the shaft and to determine the slope of the tunnel. The 5.6-kilometer-long Claudius tunnel, built in 41 CE to drain the Fucine Lake in central Italy, had shafts that were up to 122 meters deep, took 11 years to build and involved approximately 30,000 workers >> IELTS TUTOR hướng dẫn Cách dùng danh từ "measure" tiếng anh

By the 6th century BCE, a second method of tunnel construction appeared called the counter-excavation method, in which the tunnel was constructed from both ends. It was used to cut through high mountains when the qanat method was not a practical alternative. This method required greater planning and advanced knowledge of surveying, mathematics and geometry as both ends of a tunnel had to meet correctly at the center of the mountain. Adjustments to the direction of the tunnel also had to be made whenever builders encountered geological problems or when it deviated from its set path. They constantly checked the tunnel's advancing direction, for example, by looking back at the light that penetrated through the tunnel mouth, and made corrections whenever necessary. Large deviations could happen, and they could result in one end of the tunnel not being usable. An inscription written on the side of a 428-meter tunnel, built by the Romans as part of the Saldae aqueduct system in modern-day Algeria, describes how the two teams of builders missed each other in the mountain and how the later construction of a lateral link between both corridors corrected the initial error. >> IELTS TUTOR hướng dẫn Cách dùng liên từ tiếng anh

The Romans dug tunnels for their roads using the counter-excavation method, whenever they encountered obstacles such as hills or mountains that were too high for roads to pass over. An example is the 37-meter-long, 6-meter-high, Furlo Pass Tunnel built in Italy in 69-79 CE. Remarkably, a modern road still uses this tunnel today. Tunnels were also built for mineral extraction. Miners would locate a mineral vein and then pursue it with shafts and tunnels underground. Traces of such tunnels used to mine gold can still be found at the Dolaucothi mines in Wales. When the sole purpose of a tunnel was mineral extraction, construction required less planning, as the tunnel route was determined by the mineral vein. >> IELTS TUTOR hướng dẫn Cách dùng động từ "locate" tiếng anh

Roman tunnel projects were carefully planned and carried out. The length of time it took to construct a tunnel depended on the method being used and the type of rock being excavated. The qanat construction method was usually faster than the counter-excavation method as it was more straightforward. This was because the mountain could be excavated not only from the tunnel mouths but also from shafts. The type of rock could also influence construction times. When the rock was hard, the Romans employed a technique called fire quenching which consisted of heating the rock with fire, and then suddenly cooling it with cold water so that it would crack. Progress through hard rock could be very slow, and it was not uncommon for tunnels to take years, if not decades, to be built. Construction marks left on a Roman tunnel in Bologna show that the rate of advance through solid rock was 30 centimeters per day. In contrast, the rate of advance of the Claudius tunnel can be calculated at 1.4 meters per day. Most tunnels had inscriptions showing the names of patrons who ordered construction and sometimes the name of the architect. For example, the 1.4-kilometer Çevlik tunnel in Turkey, built to divert the floodwater threatening the harbor of the ancient city of Seleuceia Pieria, had inscriptions on the entrance, still visible today, that also indicate that the tunnel was started in 69 CE and was completed in 81 CE.
