Dynamic Numerical Simulation for the Problem of Tunnel Rock Mass Large Deformation of a Hydropower Project in the Upper Reaches of Lancang River
It is a very effective technology methods that using dynamic numerical simulation of discrete element method to study the large deformation problems of underground engineering rock mass which in the complex rock mass mechanics environmental conditions.Research achievements show that the development of deformation failure of the tunnel surrounding rock and the final convergence stability are mainly controlled by rock mass structure and its stress environment in the special toppling deformation rock mass. Deformation of the rock mass that in the lateral unloading and relaxation and also has a complex rock mass structure developed sustainably and progressivity over time,will eventually seriously damaged in roof fall. The surrounding rock deformation of the tunnel ,which have a good rock mass integrity and do not have the obvious unloading and relaxation stress environment, gradually tended to be stable after the initial deceleration-type development.
