Abstract

The advancement of a tunnel boring machine in the ground has been modelled
using a phased excavation scheme, including the slurry support at the shield face, the conicity of the shield and the grouting at the shield tail. A comparison is made with field measurements obtained at the Second Heinenoord Tunnel. Also calculations are made including a row of houses, founded on piles, to show the deformations caused by tunnel construction.
