Numerical investigation of segmental tunnel linings-comparison between the hyperstatic reaction method and a 3D numerical model
Ngoc Anh Do, Daniel Dias and Pierpaolo Oreste

 
Abstract
    This paper has the aim of estimating the applicability of a numerical approach to the Hyperstatic Reaction Method (HRM) for the analysis of segmental tunnel linings. For this purpose, a simplified three-dimensional (3D) numerical model, using the FLAC3D finite difference software, has been developed, which allows analysing in a rigorous way the effect of the lining segmentation on the overall behaviour of the lining. Comparisons between the results obtained with the HRM and those determined by means of the simplified 3D numerical model show that the proposed HRM method can be used to investigate the behaviour of a segmental tunnel lining.
