Paper Title:
Computer Aided Design for Safety Analysis of Excavation in Stratified Rock Tunnel
  Abstract

Stratified rock mass is widely existing in tunnel engineering. The most relevant feature of stratified rocks is the occurrence of very persistent bedding, which makes the rock-mass highly non-isotropic. A number of techniques for designing underground excavations in stratified media have been described in the literature, like theoretical method and laboratory test, which can only be applied in analyzing the problem with simple geometry and costs much expense. Recently, with rapid development of computer technique, numerical simulation methods have been widely applied in engineerin. Among all the numerical simulation methods, fast lagrangian explicit finite difference code of continua (FLAC3D) is widely used to solve practical problems, especially in field of elasto-plastic characteristic, large deformation analysis and construction procedure. So in the present paper, numerical simulation for the failure mode of stratified rock mass after tunnel excavation is done by FLAC3D, which can give further guidance to understand the anisotropic characteristic of stratified rock mass.
