Design and Construction of Tunnels: Analysis of controlled by Pietro Lunardi

By Pietro Lunardi

This paintings illustrates how the research of managed Deformation in Rocks and Soils (ADECO-RS) is utilized in the layout and the development of tunnels.

The ADECO-RS technique makes a transparent contrast among the layout and the development levels and permits trustworthy forecasts of development instances and prices to be made. It makes use of the improvement center (the middle of flooring sooner than the face) as a structural software for the lengthy and brief time period stabilisation of tunnels, after its pressure has first been regulated utilizing conservation thoughts. Tunnels can as a result be pushed in tough stress-strain stipulations to predetermined security criteria with operations industrialised and scheduled precisely.

Thanks to this strategy layout engineers were in a position to hire commercial standards in tunnel excavation, even less than super tough stress-strain conditions.

A. ) and the trust they placed in myself the consulting engineer, to try out the new technology which I had proposed. It had the effect of turning the whole line be­ ing constructed between Florence and Arezzo into one large experimental tun­ nel construction site. After reinforcement of the advance core with fibre glass tubes, excavation The Tasso tunnel which collapsed during half face was performed full face giving the face advance (NATM) a concave shape to favour the natural formation of a longitudinal arch effect.

10 The following was therefore clear from the second research stage (Fig. 10): 1. there is a close connection between extrusion of the advance core at the face and preconvergence and convergence of the cavity; 2. there are close connections between the failure of the core-face and the collapse of the cavity even if it has already been stabilised; 3. chronologically deformation in the cavity normally follows and is dependent on deformation in the core of ground at the face. It was also clear that it was necessary for an arch effect, which as we know conditions the stability of a tunnel, to have already been triggered ahead of the face in order to be able to continue to function in a determined cross section after the face has already passed ahead of it.

If one takes a point A, located on the profile of the crown of a tunnel still to be excavated, it is in fact quite clear that its radial movement u, (preconvergence) as the face approaches it, depends largely on the strength and deformation properties of the ground inside the profile of the future tunnel. If the course of its radial movement is plotted on a graph p-u (where p is the confinement pressure exerted radially on A), it can be seen (Fig. 12) that while the face is still distant (distance from A greater 38 From the research to ADECO-RS Conservative intervention Preconfinement of a cavity can be achieved using various types of intervention depending on the type of ground (natural consistency), the stress states in play and the presence of water.
