Areas are getting more and more populated causing new infrastructure lines to be constructed below the surface. A bored tunnel is one of the possibilities to create this subsurface infrastructure, but the construction process of a bored tunnel is a complicated one. Many loads and aspects are present in this construction process that can be divided into six phases. In each of these phases, different loads and aspects are acting on the tunnel lining or the surrounding soil which can cause the…

Three-dimensional numerical simulation for mechanized tunnelling in soft ground: the influence of the joint pattern

The main purpose of this study was to provide a three-dimensional numerical model, which would allow the tunnel lining behaviour and the displacement field surrounding the tunnel to be evaluated.

Ultimate limit state analysis of a segmented tunnel lining

Because of low hindrances during construction and lack of space in populated areas, shield driven tunnels are becoming more and more popular. Since 1997 these segmented tunnel linings are also

The equivalence of a jointed shield-driven tunnel lining to a continuous ring structure

This paper presents a new method of determining the correction factor to approximate a jointed, shield-driven tunnel lining as a continuous ring structure under plane strain conditions. An earth
