<p>This paper studies the impact of overhead excavation on an existing tunnel through both field monitoring and a full 3D numerical model. It is found that the excavation induced longitudinal heave of the tunnel is uneven with maximum heave occurring below ...
Reference: CMC, vol.34, no.1, pp.63-81, 2013
<p>The flow of bentonite and grout around a TBM influences the settlement trough that is created during TBM tunneling. Not taking into account this flow, leads to a calculated settlement trough that is too deep. Two calculation methods have been developed: ...
