Studying the variation of rotor pressing forces and horizontal soil pressure during shield tunneling

  • A. A. Voznesensky
  • S. V. Mazein


The authors carried out a geomechanical analysis of shield tunneling in loam. Laws of change of the horizontal component of soil pressure caused by formation of slip planes in rock mass ahead of the face were found by means of numerical simulation.
