Ground-Liner Interaction Analysis in Underground Opening
The ground-liner interaction research has important engineering value for the underground engineering design optimization and evaluation of construction safety. The interface between ground and liner is considered. In this paper, the effect of different ground-liner stiffness ratio, lateral pressure coefficient, thickness and different interface stiffness ratio and other factors on the support structure for internal forces and interface stress is analyzed. The analysis results show that liner internal force and interface stress increase with the increase of stiffness ratio between liner and ground, and the impact is very significant. Effect of lateral pressure coefficient on liner internal force and interface stress mainly reflects on laws around the cavern, where 1 is the limitation of lateral pressure coefficient. It presents symmetrical distribution. With the increase of liner thickness, the liner internal force and interface normal stress increase, but it make no difference to the contact interface tangential stress.
