Abstract

The original approach to the problem of designing circular tunnel linings located near slopes upon seismic effects consisting in the determination of the most unfavourable stress state in the every lining radial section at different combinations and any directions of long longitudinal and shear waves propagating in the plane of the tunnel cross-section is described in the paper presented. The analytical methods of determining the tunnel lining stress state caused by static loads namely by the rock own weight and the vertical load uniformly distributed on the part of the inclined straight boundary simulating the weight of building or structure on the surface are also described.

Design of Tunnels Located Near Slopes in Seismic Areas
