Prevention Logic of Rock Burst for Brittle Rock under High Geo-Stress
Rock burst hazard is the main problem of hard rock deep tunnel under high ground stress conditions. The prevention logic of prevention and control of rock burst is proposed by combining local energy release rate index based on the brittle Hoek-Brown model. Stress releasing holes are adopted to lead some energy to release actively and eliminate burst potential of rock burst. Supporting opportunity and parameters were studied by contrasting the magnitude of released energy in FLAC3D numerical software, and then the prevention logic of rock burst is presented. Stress releasing holes relieve stress concentration of the working face, transfer the stress to the deep and reduce the risk of rock burst near the working face. At last, the prevention and control of rock burst for sinping II Hydropower tunnel was analyzed, the results are in good agreement with the actual situations. The proposed method could benefit other deep tunnel projects which have brittle failure.
