In recent years, anumber of models and formulas have been proposed to estimate the penetration rate of hard rock tunnel boring machines (TBMs). This study will focus on sensitivity analysis and examination of the effects of variation in the input parameters on the results of the commonly used performance prediction models for rock TBMs. The results of modeling were compared with the recorded machine performance to evaluate the validity and accuracy of these models. The sensitivity analysis of… CONTINUE READING
