Experimental study on the spray density distribution of water spray system in road tunnel
So, Soo-Hyun ; Park, Kyung-Hwan ;
Journal of Korean Tunnelling and Underground Space Association, volume 13, issue 1, 2011, Pages 1~8
Spray density of the water spray system which is installed in long road tunnels and hazardous vehicle tunnels is applied without proper performance assessment process. In this study, the requirements of Spray Density Guidelines at the standard pressure is investigated through spray test set up the nozzle of a water spray system in a simulated road tunnel. The results showed that all the nozzles used in the test area did not meet the requirements of the Guidelines. The absence of performance test codes and inspection process on the nozzle at real scale in tunnels may have caused this practice. Therefore, it is suggested that the performance test regulations of the nozzle on the water spray system is established in order to properly assess the system performance.

The spalling phenomenon occurs in high-strength concrete when several factors such as sharp temperature increase, high water content, low water/cement ratio and local stress concentration in material combine in the concrete material. On the basis of the factors, the preventing methods from the spalling are known as reduction of temperature increase, preventing of concrete fragmentation and fast drying of internal moisture. In this study, the reduction of temperature increase was proposed as the most effective spalling-preventing method among the spalling-preventing methods. Engineered cementitious composite for fireproof and repair materials was developed in order to protect the new and existing RC structures form exterior deterioration factors such as fire, cloride ion, etc. This study was carried out to estimate the fire-resisting performance of high strength concrete slab or tunnel lining by repaired engineered cementitious composite (ECC) or fiber reinforcement cemetitious composite (FRCC) under fire temperature curve. and them we will descrike the result of HIDA tunnel in Japan.

The risk assessment is essential for tunnel design in order to minimize risks associated with uncertainty about geological conditions and tunneling method. This paper provides a comparative risk analysis of a large single bore TBM driven tunnel against sequentially excavated NATM tunnel for a mixed-face large-diameter urban tunnel project near or under a river. The focus of this assessment is on the risks associated with the tunnel excavation methods, in particular whether a TBM or NATM presents more or less risk to achieve the planned excavation duration and bring the project within the estimated bid price. First, the impacts and risks to tunnel construction under each method were discussed, and the risks were scored and ranked in the order of perceived severity and likelihood. Finally, the assessment from a risk based perspective was conducted to decide which alternate tunneling method is more likely to deliver the project with the least time and cost. It is very important to note that this study is only applied to this tunnel project with specific geological conditions and other contract requirements.
A study on the enlargement of 2-lane road tunnel under construction
Choi, Hae-Jun ; Kim, Dae-Kyu ;
Journal of Korean Tunnelling and Underground Space Association, volume 13, issue 1, 2011, Pages 33~50
Recently interest in enlargement of existing tunnel located in downtown or mountain area have been considerably increased along with requirements and discussion on the road-widening. Therefore, it is necessary to study the construction method and stability of tunnel to enlarge the existing tunnel in design. In this study, the design concept on the alignment, excavation method, reinforcement to enlarge the existing tunnel is described on the basis of the enlargement of 2-lane road tunnel under construction. This paper suggests a proper design method for the enlargement of an existing tunnel in useful practice.
Effect of tunneling under a bridge on pile foundation behavior mechanism
Choi, Go-Ny ; Woo, Seung-Je ; Yoo, Chung-Sik ;
Journal of Korean Tunnelling and Underground Space Association, volume 13, issue 1, 2011, Pages 51~69
This paper presents the effect of tunneling on bridge pile foundation being operated using three-dimensional numerical modeling. Also the parametric study on the depth of tunnel of which the diameter was 10 m was carried out in order to evaluate the behaviors of pile foundation due to the tunnel excavation. This paper expresses the changes of vertical and horizontal displacement, movement of soil and stress of the pile. Based on the results obtained from the numerical analysis some insights into the changes of pile foundation behaviors due to variations of tunneling location were mentioned and discussed.
A study on pull-out behaviours of shotcrete steel fibers according to different shapes
Kim, Sang-Hwan ; Kim, Ji-Tae ;
Journal of Korean Tunnelling and Underground Space Association, volume 13, issue 1, 2011, Pages 71~82
This paper presents the tensile strength of shotcrete steel fibers depending on the shape of steel fiber. The experimental and numerical analyses are performed in this study. In experimental study, a series of laboratory pullout tests are carried out by changing both the angle and the length of the embedded steel fiber according to the corresponding type of steel fiber in order to derive the optimal type of steel fiber. Results obtained from the experimental work are evaluated and compared with the numerical analysis results. The results clearly show that the pull-out strength of the steel fiber are increased with increasing the hook angle and embedded angle of steel fiber. It is also found that the pull-out strength of the steel fiber is larger in case of the short steel fiber body length.
