Abstract

Presently, a tunnel sustaining the outer load and the load caused by inner water pressure with a primary lining made up of segments is usually selected for a large-scale underground shield tunnel project. The Advanced Construction Technology Center, commissioned by the Ministry of Construction and others, has been studying problems related to design methods and the planning of such projects for a few years. Here is an outline of the conclusions we have reached on segment structure and design methods.
