Design of Underground Openings and Slopes in Rock - 24th January 2018

With the continuing demand for usable land to accommodate infrastructures in highly urbanized places such as Hong Kong, the need for sub-terranean solutions such as use of underground openings in rock including tunnels and caverns is evident. However, there are many engineering issues in the design and construction of underground openings in jointed rock masses such as the magnitude and direction of the in-situ stress, orientation of the discontinuity structure, etc. These factors play an important role in the optimization of the designs of tunnels and caverns in rock and the stability of underground excavation. The impact of these engineering parameters on the design and construction of underground openings will be elaborated in this one-day CPD course.   

Rock dynamics and blasting assessment of slopes using different approaches will be presented in the 2nd part of this one-day CPD course. Lastly the design of shotcrete rock reinforcement with use of the PHASE2 program will be presented.

 

Course Outline:

  • Basic rock mechanics for tunnels & caverns design
  • Ground investigation and rock engineering parameters
  • In-situ stress considerations

  • Joint orientations and effects

  • Intact rock and rock mass

  • Rock mass classifications

  • Rock supports

  • Pillar stability analysis
  • Water ingress assessment
  • Rock dynamics and blasting assessment of slopes

  • Design of shotcrete rock reinforcement with use of the PHASE2 program
