Prediction of Ground Deformations Due to Excavation-Application to Tunnel Lining Design in Weak Rock
Prediction of ground deformations due to excavations is simulated by three dimensional non-linear finite element analyses. It considers various in-situ ground stress levels, excavation...

Three Dimensional Simulation of Progressive Tunneling Process for Lining Design of Intersecting Tunnels in Soft Rock
This paper presents the results of the state-of-the-art three-dimensional nonlinear finite element modeling of progressive tunneling process and its comparison with field data. Reasonable...

Settlement Analysis of Landfill Liners over Deep Mined Areas
Tensile strains due to differential settlement from past mining activities were evaluated for a landfill liner. The landfill cell encompasses 20 acres and is located on a subsurface profile...

Hydraulic Design of Spillway Plunge Pool Linings
The design of plunge pools for high head spillways with flip bucket terminal structures often requires a detailed examination of the stability of the resulting scour hole in the river...

Hurricane Andrew Induced Damage to Florida Power & Light's Transmission System

Role of Vortex-Excited Vibrations in Damage to Power Poles in Hurricane Andrew

Structural Characteristics of the Danby Pipe Renovation System

Rehabilitation of Brick-Lined Railroad Tunnels to Achieve Increased Clearance

A Predictive Hydrologic Model for Contaminant Leaching and Liner Effectiveness at Dredged Material Confined Disposal Facilities

Design and Application of Integrated Shotcrete Linings for Underground Openings in Weak Rock Masses
Tunnels and caverns excavated in weak rock masses require special consideration in terms of shotcrete lining design. Shotcrete as a support medium for weak rock provides major benefits...

Guidelines for Shotcrete Support in Hard Rock
The writer is working on a handbook on shotcrete in hard rock. The work is sponsored by the Swedish Power Board, Development Division. The main contents are: Choice of shotcrete support...

Application of the Wet Shotcrete System Top Shot in Tunneling—Experiences, Evaluation and Comparison

Site Measurement of Shotcreting Dust
Shotcreting is broadly used today as an excellent lining system, which enables to assure rapidly the stability of excavated rock surface. This system however leaves room for improvements...

New Developments in Tunnel Lining by Help of Steel Fibre Reinforced Concrete
The combination of single shell structures in tunnelling with the use of steel-fibre-reinforced concrete is decisively able to reduce the costs of tunnel projects. Several variants of...

Use of Steel-Fiber Reinforced Wet-Mix Shotcrete in Extreme Rock-Bursting Conditions
If the stresses close to tunnels or caverns exceed the capacity of the surrounding rock, rock-bursting might start. When tunneling in such rock conditions the need for a safe, quick and...

Design of Shotcrete Linings at the Channel Tunnel
Shotcrete is one of the essential support elements of tunnels driven according to the principles of the New Austrian Tunnelling Method (NATM). Whereas originally the NATM was mainly based...

Construction of Shotcrete Linings Channel Tunnel
Without the use of shotcrete and the flexibility it offers in terms of tunnel profile, economy and speed of tunnelling, the project would certainly not be as far advanced as it is at present....

Fibre Reinforced Shotcrete Case Studies of Wet and Dry Processes
Both wet shotcrete and fibre reinforced shotcrete are being increasingly utilised in the South African mining industry. This Paper describes two applications of fibre reinforced shotcrete...

A Review of Sprayed Concrete Linings Adopted at Dinorwig Power Station
Sprayed concrete was adopted extensively as one element of both temporary and permanent rock support during the construction of the 1800 MW Dinorwig underground power station in North...

Reinforced Shotcrete Linings as Part of an Integrated Support System Used in a High Stress Mining Environment
Shabanie and King Mines are situated in the Southern part of Zimbabwe, some 60 km apart and approximately 200 km east of Bulawayo. They are the largest underground operations in Zimbabwe...
