BEHAVIOR OF BOLTED JOINTS OF LARGE-STEEL-SEGMENTAL TUNNEL

This paper deals with the bolted joints of a large steel segmental tunnel built in a zigzag fashion and subjected to bending moment in the ring plane. The stiffness of the segmental joint subjected to axial compression on its contact surfaces was about one thirteenth that of main beams of the segment. The method of the structural analysis suggested was in fairly good agreement with the experimental results.
