<p>The most challenging rock mass conditions in hard rock subsea tunnels are represented bymajor faults/weakness zones. Poor stability weakness zones with large water inflow can be particularly problematic. At the pre-construction investigation stage, geological ...

<p>Several well acknowledged test and prognosis methods already exist for rock, however there is only very limited knowledge available to describe the abrasiveness of soil and its impact on soft ground TBMs. This paper will examine approaches to this problem ...

<p>The rock itself is a significant barrier against groundwater movement if it has low porosity and is unweathered. The existence of discontinuities in the rock mass however increases the permeability and it may vary widely. In the Himalayas, active tectonic ...

The paper discusses alternative approaches to stability analyses including the traditional deterministic principle, the so-called partial factor principle and the probabilistic approach which assesses the probability of failure rather than the factor of safety ...

The Tellnes open pit mine in Southwestern Norway has been operating since 1960. The maximum height of pit walls is currently about 150 meters with the current mine plan extending this distance to 400 meters with slope stability being a major controlling factor. ...
