Deformations assessment during subway escalator tunnels construction by the method of artificial freezing of soil for the stage of ice wall formation

Article preview

The work is devoted to the study of the processes of displacement and deformation of the surface during the escalator tunnels construction of the subway by the method of artificial freezing of soils. The features of the construction and freezing technology, the rocks characteristics in which the escalator tunnels made are considered. The data of specially organized, full-scale surveying observations of deformations on the earth surface are presented. The main factors influencing deformation processes in the frozen strata of a layered inhomogeneous rock mass with inclined tunneling are determined, the complexity of the predictive task and the need to simplify the design scheme are shown. The work is focused on the assessment of the least studied geomechanical processes of soil heaving-uplifts and deformations during the periods of active and passive freezing stages. When studying the displacements processes of the earth surface and rock mass, the finite element method and analysis of the obtained data using field observations of displacements were used. A simplified calculation scheme is proposed for modeling, which allows taking into account the uneven influence of frozen rocks of an inhomogeneous layered rock mass with a large inclined tunneling. The satisfactory convergence of the data of field surveying observations on the earth surface and the results of modeling geomechanical processes for the period of active and passive freezing stages is shown. The proposed calculation scheme is recommended for the prediction of deformation at the stages of underground construction, characterized by the development of the most dangerous tensile deformations of buildings and structures on the surface.

Consideration of vertical asymmetry of shear distribution in the rock massif surrounding the tunnel under construction

Article preview

This paper proposes one of the ways to account for the vertical asymmetry of displacement fields in the rock mass surrounding the tunnel, based on classical analytical solutions from continuum mechanics. To account for such asymmetry, the displacement and deformation functions obtained for symmetric design schemes are used and transformed to take into account the identified surface of zero displacements and deformations under the tunnel.

Analytical methods for calculation of basic parameters of the displacement trough in the construction of tunnels in Cambrian clays

Article preview

In the article the feasibility of idealized methods to calculation of deformations of a surface is considered at facility of tunnels in simple geological conditions. Among such methods the special attension is given to methods of a mathematical theory of elastic strength, which one will widely be used in mechanics of underground structures (close in the essence to a considered problematics). The applicability (feasibility) of the analytical approach is detected within the framework of the registration of the separate mining-and-geological factors.
