In the past 50 years, underground construction has experienced a boom in both complexity and in the scale of the projects undertaken. As a result, engineers need to overcome challenges posed by the formulation of a sound geotechnical model and the associated prediction of the mechanical behaviour.
Due to the unique complexities of tunnelling and the challenges in applying codified solutions to tunnel engineering, much engineering design is based on collected historical performance data which is analysed and applied to new designs. Special challenges arise in cases where rocks and rockmasses are susceptible to time-effects and time-dependent processes govern.
This talk covers advances in the scientific understanding of time-dependent rock and rockmass behaviour, with a view to increasing awareness of how such phenomena are captured numerically. Furthermore, it aims to lay out a practical framework for dealing with such deformations when predicting tunnel movement – offering an opportunity to bridge the gap between the scientific and industrial community.
