Tunnel Lining Design

There are many computer programs for tunnel lining design. However, only a few are able to provide results that can be used directly for tunnel design because project specified load factors and load combinations cannot be included in the calculations with most design programs. Although some programs are able to account for the load factors and load combinations, they may require extensive amounts of time to set up the computer models for calculation.  Visual Slope-Tunnel Design module uses a beam-spring model that can include specified load factors and load combinations for initial steel set design and final lining design.  The interaction between the tunnel structure and the surrounding soil/rock is simulated with radial and tangential springs. Users can use the tunnel generator to set up calculation models with different shapes in just a few minutes. All load combinations can be calculated with just one click.
