STRUCTURAL BEHAVIOR OF MONOLITHIC CONCRETE TUNNEL LINING MODELS. CIVIL ENGINEERING STUDIES

Eight tests of circular, 10-ft diameter models of cast-in-place tunnel linings unreinforced and with steel fiber and conventional reinforcement are described. The loading simulated interaction with the ground. The tests are compared with results of a computer program that simulates the soil-structure interaction and the nonlinear behavior of the linings. Additional studies of the concrete material properties and lining section behavior are described.
