LIU Xian, SUN Qihao
Hazard Control in Tunnelling and Underground Engineering    2020, 2 (2): 21-30.  
Abstract   PDF (6131KB)  
In many cases of shield tunnel collapse accidents occurred both domestically and internationally, the development process of the collapse showed the characteristics of progressive collapse, leading to serious economic losses and casualties. However, the research is still in its primary stage. The lack of understanding of the triggering conditions, development process, and effective prevention measures of the progressive collapse of shield tunnels restricted the high-quality development of urban rail transit in China. Based on the statistical analysis of nearly one hundred cases of tunnels accidents all over the world and focused investigation into 23 typical cases of progressive collapse from 2003 to 2020, the characteristics of progressive collapse of shield tunnels was analyzed. Using statistical methods, the initial damaged location, stratum, damage degree and other factors of shield tunnel progressive collapse accidents and their relationships were categorized and evaluated. The main characteristics were clarified. Based on the comprehensive analysis of multiple cases, the development process of the shield tunnel lining structure damage in the accident was generalized, and it corresponded to the damage degree of the tunnel structure. Finally, considering the interaction between the tunnel structure and the surrounding stratum, the response of the surrounding water and soil during the collapse was analyzed, and it was pointed out that the progressive collapse of the shield tunnels was a fluid-solid coupling dynamic problem. The research results are helpful to improve the relevant understanding of the progressive collapse of shield tunnels, and provide guidance for the prevention and control of the progressive collapse of shield tunnels.

Hazard Control in Tunnelling and Underground Engineering    2019, 1 (2): 49-58.  
Abstract   PDF (6548KB)  
Natural gas, as a clean energy, is one of the main energies fueling the green economic development of China. It is one of the main tasks to develop underground gas storage facilities so as to increase the natural gas storage capacity and to improve the quick access to large volume of natural gas during high demand periods. The state-of-the-art of the three principal types of underground gas storage, i.e., in depleted oil/gas fields, aquifers and salt caverns and the basic information on underground gas storage facilities used in USA and Europe were reviewed. The development of underground gas storage facilities in China was compared with that in other countries. Root causes for three typical accidents on three underground gas storage facilities were analyzed. The statistical results on the accidents on underground gas storage facilities documented in literature were summarized. The differences on the root causes of accidents on different types of underground gas storage facilities were analyzed. Some suggestions on the plan and construction of underground gas storage facilities in China were presented according to the experiences and lessons from the review on the development in other countries.

LIANG Liwei, LIU Chun, QIN Yan, ZHU Chenguang, DENG Shang
Hazard Control in Tunnelling and Underground Engineering    2019, 1 (3): 116-122.  
Abstract   PDF (6074KB)  
The interaction between the hob and the rock mass is the core of TBM technology, and numerical simulation plays an important role in studying this process. In this paper, a hob and a soft-strong inter-bedded rock model was built based on further development of discrete element software MatDEM, which contained 502 thousand particles. By simulating the process of the rock breaking by a hob, as well as recording and analyzing, including boundary and hob force, particle connection, energy conversion, heat distribution and so on. The simulation results showed that, when strong rock breaked, the force of boundary and hob changing obviously, and the particles had greater force in the direction perpendicular to the hob and layer, but when weak rock layer was breaking, the inner boundary and the hob bore less stress, and the force of the hob was uniform; There were a few of broken joints in strong rock layer, and breaking volume of rock mass was small; During this process a lot of frictional heat was produced, and the accumulate of energy in strong rock was larger. MatDEM could simulate rock breaking process by hob effectively. By modifying the shape of hob and parameter of rock, this method could be further used for simulation of large-scale rock breaking by hob in other engineering conditions. It also provided a new way for numerical simulation of large-scale hob breaking rock.

Disturbance control technology for large diameter slurry shield crossing the sensitive zone without reinforcement conditions
Hazard Control in Tunnelling and Underground Engineering    2019, 1 (2): 107-113.  
Abstract   PDF (6026KB)  
With the rapid development of shield technology, more and more shield tunnels pass through sensitive environments. Due to the complicated construction conditions of shield tunnels, stratum disturbances will inevitably occur during the construction process, resulting in settlement on the surface and serious damage to surrounding buildings. Therefore, it is especially important to control the construction settlement effectively when the subway tunnel passes through settlement sensitive areas such as high-density shantytowns. The project of Wuhan Metro Line 8 project, Huangpu Road Station to Xujiapeng Station tunneling through high-density shantytown project was taken as the project support. The perturbation control technology of super-large diameter mudwater shield in the construction process was studied. On the basis of a brief analysis of the engineering background and the difficulties, the article optimizes the excavation parameters, including the pre-excavation building evaluation and the excavation process, so as to achieve the final adjustment of the cutting water pressure, the excavation speed and the cutter head torque during the construction process. The implementation of key technologies such as mud membrane control and secondary grouting ensured the smooth progress 2019年 - 第1卷第2期王焕: 大直径泥水盾构穿越无加固条件沉降敏感带扰动控制技术研究 \=-of excavation.
