Abstract

A complete description of a geological and geotechnical investigation for the construction of a diversion tunnel in Platanovrisi dam area, East Macedonia, Greece is given. The numerical stress analysis and stress failure analysis results are presented, along with results of structurally controlled failure modes. The requirements for the application of the method are described. The conclusions from the application of the failure criterion, as well as the comparison between the analysis and the actual construction results have been discussed.
