Paper Title:
Analytical Approach for Face Stability Estimate of Tunnel with Pipe Roof Reinforcement
  Abstract

One of the most popular pre-reinforcement structures in the construction of tunnels through weak grounds would be the pipe roof reinforcement. This composite structure consists on installing, prior to the excavation of a length of tunnel, a series of pipes, either parallel to the tunnel axis or at a certain angle with it. By injecting grout through the pipes, the ground in between the pipes is stiffened and the pipes are connected, creating a kind of ‘umbrella’ above the area to be excavated. In this paper, by modifying the upper bound solution for tunnel face stability, the three-dimensional model for expressing the tunnel face stability with pipe roof reinforcement was established. For a typical example, the solutions computed by the proposed approach were compared with the results given by wedge model, trapezoid wedge model and centrifugal-model test to verify the reasonability of the method. It is shown that the calculation results of limit analysis are in close agreement with test results.
