Currently, the commonly used tunneling method in Korea is NATM (New Austrian Tunneling Method). This method uses the rock bolt, shotcrete, and supporting system to maintain the strength of original soil and ensures the stability of tunnel by stabilizing the soil using the original strength of the soil in maximum after the excavation. In past years, wire-mesh reinforced shotcrete was common ones but currently steel-fiber reinforced shotcrete is being widely used for the tunnel construction site in Korea to save construction time with the advanced construction technology. The results further indicate that needs for the establishment of not only the specifications for shotcrete but the strengthening methods for the under reinforced shotcrete sections. Therefore, this study deals with the development of a new steel-fiber to ensure the stability of tunnels that are under reinforced with steel-fibers and to overcome the shortcomings of conventional method.

It is not uncommon that private wells and small streams are used for daily life in the regions where mountain tunnels are located. Then serious social problems such as well water level fall, being attributable to tunnel excavation can occur. In the design stage, firstly we evaluated that the quantity of leakage water into tunnels. And groundwater drawdown area was simulated using numerical modeling such as MODFLOW to reduce adverse effects on life environment around tunnel. In addition we also used hydrological method to evaluate the groundwater change of tunnel area.
Evaluation of the influence of pillar width on the stability of a twin tunnel

Recently, considering the aspects of disaster prevention and environmental damage, the construction of a twin tunnel is increasing. When constructing a twin tunnel, the stresses are concentrated at the pillar so that stability of the tunnel is decreased. Since the previous studies on the behavior of a twin tunnel pillar are mainly restricted to the estimation of the tunnel behavior and the analysis of surface settlement, there is a limit to a quantitative stability estimation of the pillar. Therefore, it was quantitatively investigated how the pillar width of a twin tunnel affects its stability. To ensure this end, global tunnel safety factors obtained numerically using shear strength reduction technique, local safety factors of a pillar using the equation that Matsuda et al. suggested, and strength/stress ratios of the pillar were estimated and their results were analyzed for two sections with different rock covers. For a reasonable design of a twin tunnel pillar, it was turned out that strength/stress ratio, the local pillar safety factor, and global tunnel safety factor should be used interrelatedly rather than independently.

Construction sites are becoming larger and complex with the growth of national economy. Accordingly, it is important to identify real-time information about materials, equipments, and manpower during construction at sites. Even though research utilizing position tracking sensors has been conducted in architectural engineering fields, this area of research is almost nil in civil engineering fields. Therefore, a feasibility study to find a way to apply position tracking sensors to an in-situ tunnel construction site adopting conventional tunnelling method is performed in this study. A methodology is proposed that the progress management of the tunnelling work can be monitored by checking construction materials needed at job site and the safety management system can be assessed by checking distance between in-situ workers and construction equipments. The most representative materials were identified so that IT technology can be applied by attaching and monitoring sensors to the selected materials. Also, time of arrival (TOA) for a position determination technology along with a wireless network technology was chosen and build wireless network system. The adopted methodology was applied to an in-situ tunnelling site, and verified the usefulness of the proposed system.
Study on mechanical behavioral characteristics of the curved FRP-concrete composite member for utilization as a tunnel lining structure

Utilization of the fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) material has been increased as an alternative in a bid to supplement the problems with general construction materials such as long-term problems corrosion, etc. However, there are still many problems in using a linear-shaped FRP material for a tunnel lining structure which has arch-shape in general. In this study, the loading tests for the FRP-concrete composite member was carried out to evaluate their applicability as a tunnel reinforcement material, which are based on the results from preliminary numerical studies for identifying the behavioral characteristics of FRP-concrete composite member. Moreover, numerical analysis under the same condition as applied in the loading tests was again conducted for analysis of mechanical behavior of the composite member. As a result of the load test and numerical analysis, it appears that the FRP-concrete composite member is greatly subject to shear movement caused by bending tension acting on the interface between two constituent members.
