Finite Element Analysis of Dongjusi Railway Tunnel within Hard Rock Mass Based on the Unified Rock Mass Strength Criterion

Article Preview

The twin shear strength criterion has been proposed to consider the intermediate principal stress effect on the rock mass strength. The unified rock mass strength criterion could consider the intermediate principal stress effect on the rock mass strength. The unified rock mass elasto-plastic material model is implemented in ABAQUS user interface. As a case for study, the stability analysis of Dongjusi railway tunnel within hard rock mass is studied using the unified rock mass strength material. For comparison, the Hoek-Brown empirical strength criterion is also chosen for the rock mass material modeling. The computation results show that the plastic zone calculated using the unified rock mass strength criterion is smaller than that using the Hoek-Brown empirical strength criterion. The railway tunnel lining structure is designed according to the unified rock mass strength criterion and greatly makes use of the rock mass potential strength, which decreases engineering cost.
