DIMENSIONING OF TUNNEL LININGS WITH REGARD TO CONSTRUCTIONAL PROCEDURES

It is shown that by using a combination of the characteristic curves for rock, rock core and installed structures, the point of equilibrium, i.e. the effective rock pressure, may be calculated. The influence of the method of working and of the distance between heading and point of installation of support structure is demonstrated, and a procedure for the evaluation of these influences is suggested. The method of calculation may be applied to the control of rock pressure and deformation properties of tunnel linings. /TRRL/
