FIELD MEASUREMENTS FOR THE DESIGN OF THE WASHUZAN TUNNEL IN JAPAN

A design approach to the dimensioning of underground openings is proposed. The proposed method is based on a back analysis of displacements measured at the construction of pilot or exploratory adits which are excavated prior to the construction of main tunnels. The proposed method is applied to the design of the Washuzan tunnel in Japan. The measurement data of displacements are shown and the results of the back-analysis are discussed in connection with the design of the main tunnel. The number of the covering abstract of the congress is TRIS no. 385148. (TRRL)
