STRESS MEASUREMENTS IN TUNNEL LININGS

One problem in tunnel design is the measurement and interpretation of stresses in linings. Lining behaviour needs to be checked in cases of malfunctioning or during the service life of the structure. Also, the static conditions of tunnels excavated in the past and supported with brick masonry linings is sometimes to be considered. This paper describes techniques developed to measure stresses in the above conditions. (TRRL)
