Calculation of Surrounding Rock Pressure of Undercut Subway Station Based on Multi-Factor Affecting Pressure Arch Theory
Abstract: The formation mechanism of surrounding rock pressure in large-section tunnels of underground excavation is still unclear. The traditional methods for calculating surrounding rock pressure have certain limitations. Based on the theory of pressure arch and parameter sensitivity analysis, the internal and external boundaries of the pressure arch are solved by numerical simulation. The loose pressure is obtained according to the distance from the inner boundary to the inner wall of the tunnel. The pressure arch deformation is analyzed based on the Winkler model. The surrounding rock pressure is calculated, and the surrounding rock pressure based on the pressure arch theory is calculated. The calculation method of surrounding rock pressure based on the pressure arch theory large section tunnel is proposed. The orthogonal experimental design method was used to select four representative factors: tunnel depth H, span B, internal friction angle φ and rock weight γ. The calculation results of each group of experiments were compiled and multivariate linear regression was used. The method is statistically analyzed, and finally, the calculation formula of the surrounding rock pressure of the large-section tunnel affected by multiple factors is obtained and applied to the calculation of the surrounding rock pressure of the metro station.
