We are pleased to announce that this webinar will be presented by Dr Mehdi Bakhshi, one of AECOM's Senior Tunnel Designers currently working out of the New York office.
This webinar gives an overview of the methodology, assumptions, and results of analyses conducted to calculate applied forces on the tunnel lining and design the segmental lining for an underground tunnel structure.
The behaviour of segmental lining has been investigated under several mechanisms and load cases:
- Permanent loads due to tunnel embedment in rock and soil (serviceability phase)
- Loads applied during segment storage, transport, and handling
- TBM jack thrust forces into the segments (construction phase)
- Loads due to pressure of the semi-liquid grout (construction phase)
