Inversion Analysis of Three-Dimensional Geostress Field in the Second Stage Project of South-to-North Water Transfer
Focus on the topography features of V-shaped deep river valley in Ada dam area, the influence of intensively, moderately and slightly weathered stratum as well as the action of river valley erosion on geostress field was considered. Then, the 3-D initial geostress unloading model was established based on the measured geostress data and geological conditions. Combining the finite element numerical method and inversion theory, multiple regression analysis was established between the measured and corresponding calculated results of geostress. Then, the optimal regression coefficient could be derived. In addition, for convenience of comparison, another method was adopted by ignoring the action of river valley erosion. Through the comparison between the computed values by two methods and the measured geostress values respectively, it is found that the computed values by the former method are more close to the measured ones. Therefore, the distribution rule of initial geostress field can be obtained accurately, which provides important reference for design and construction of Ada dam and its diversion tunnel layout.
