2 Shield machines with partial face excavation (SM-T) 1) Face without support (SM-T1) This type of open mode shield can be used with a vertically or steeply sloping and stable face. The machine consists of a shield skin and the excavation tools (excavator, milling head or ripper tooth), the spoil removal equipment and the thrust cylinders. The excavated material is removed on a conveyor belt or chain scraper. 2) Face with partial mechanical support (SM-T2) For partial support of the face, working platforms and/or poling plates can be used.
This type of support is, however, cumbersome and hinders the use of mechanical excavation. Due to the low advance rate and high wage costs, the method is only used in exceptional cases. Much more flexible and practical is the use of poling plates, which are pressed against the face hydraulically (Figure 2-3). The part of the face to be excavated has to be exposed (see Chapter 8). Closed cutting wheels provide safety against falling ground for the crew in the excavation chamber. It is not, however, correct to assume for purposes of calculation any mechanical support effect from the rotating cutting wheel during excavation.
In soil with higher permeability, it is difficult to support the face with compressed air. Greathead therefore developed a shield in 1874 with fluid-supported face to avoid the disadvantages of compressed air. The soil was intended to be removed hydraulically by a fluid and transported hydraulically as slurry (Figure 1-22). D. and G. K. Price, U. K. Patent, 1896  Figure 1-21 Mechanised shield used by Price, 1902 (Markham) In 1896, Haag applied for a patent in Berlin for the first shield with fluid-supported face in Germany, with the excavation chamber full of fluid being hermetically sealed as a pressure chamber (Figure 1-23).
