The Slabbing Mechanics Analysis of the Tunnel Lining
When the road tunnel is excavated, the multi lining is used to being applied. In order to keep the surrounding rock stabilize and arouse the self-stability of the surrounding rock, building the first support is essential. But the slabbing often occurs near the spring line on the surface of the first lining, and because the slabbling is a common failing and not attracted our most attentions, it will develop to the crack and threaten the stability of the structure finally. This paper uses the line elastic method to analyze the mechanics that causes this slabbing phenomenon via the interaction between the surrounding rock and the first lining, and suggests the measure that escape the slabbing.
