    If you can find any information from Donald Blount it will probably be a bit more recent than the pages that Peter du Cane devoted to the subject in one of his books.

    I didn't see this thread until now. Endresen (founder of Servogear) did a lot of work on tunnel optimization too. I have not taken the time to dig up any of his papers but there is a design guide on their website that may be of some interest. I had the opportunity to work with Endresen and the installation of one his earliest systems on some high-speed catamaran ferries built in Norway back in the early 90s.
