3D Simulation of Tunnel Collapse Consolidation and In Situ Monitoring Analysis
A shallow buried tunnel was collapsed during construction. According to the actual situation of the tunnel, different collapse consolidation schemes were put forward and corresponding three-dimensional finite difference numerical models were established and analyzed using FLAC3D software. Base on the 3D Simulation results, a collapse consolidation scheme was determined and constructed. The in-situ monitoring results of vault subsidence and convergence displacement were consistent approximately with the 3D Simulation results. The in-situ measured results were in line with the specification’s allowance and show that the consolidation effect of reinforced concrete casing arch and ahead grouting method is good. This could be referenced for similar engineering.
