Numerical Analysis of Grouting and Blocking of Deep Large Section Shaft at Working Face
To estimate the effect of deep large section Shaft Face Grouting for water block, the mathematical model is obtained according to the seepage theory. The numerical model for calculation is established by the program ABAQUS. The laws of change of pore water pressure, the effect area of dewatering, the velocity of seepage, water inflow of shaft working face before and after grouting is obtained by numerical simulation. It is shown that the grouting can effectively plug water channel of cracked surrounding rock, and prevent the pore water pressure lowering range to be larger. The working face seepage flow velocity was significantly reduced. The water inflow is decreased significantly. The safety of the shaft construction and the stability structure of shaft lining and upper strata are ensured by grouting. The numbers of grout stop and grouting construction can be largely reduced. The economic benefit is obvious. The scientific reference is provided for deep large section Shaft Face Grouting for water block.
