Abstract

Support requirements for two caverns arc worked out by empirical and the numerical approaches. The adequacy of the shotcrete-rock bolt support system is monitored by measuring the deformations of caverns walls and roof. The measurements are compared with the results obtained from the numerical approach. Brief geology, the supports, and the results of performance monitoring are presented in the paper.
