Prediction of Shield Tunnelling-Induced Ground Settlement Considering Soil-Water Coupled and around Soil Disturbance Damage
to evaluate the influence of soil-water coupled and shield tunnel construction induced around soil disturbance damage on ground surface settlement, the process of shield tunnel construction induced around soil disturbance is analyzed, the FLAC3D numerical simulation are carried out, and a newly-modified tunnelling-induced ground settlement calculation method based on disturbance degree of around soil and soil-water coupled is presented, and these methods are applied in case of Beijing Metro 10th Line. It is indicated that considering the influence of the shield tunnelling-induced around soil disturbance damage, and soil-water coupled induced soil properties weakening and the excess pore water pressure dissipating induced soil consolidation to the ground surface settlement are necessary, the calculating result of the newly-modified surface settlement prediction method, and the result FLAC3D numerical simulation all agree well with in-site observed data of Beijing Metro 10th Line.
