Example text

Example Case 6. Singapore MRT, 20 April 2004. 4). 0 m thick diaphragm wall which was 35–45 m deep without rock socket. 5 m below ground. 5 m below ground (Layer 2 not yet constructed when collapse occurred). Causes of failure: under-design of the strutting system, incorrect use of Finite Element Method, no proper design reviews, disregard of different warnings, for example, excessive wall deflections and surging inclinometer readings, poor construction quality, ineffective instrumentation and monitoring system, failure to implement risk management.

Oslo Metro Tunnel, Norway, 2004. At the junction where the two tunnels met in an acute angle, tunnel cave-in after removal of most of the rock pillar between the tunnels. Possible cause of failure: unfavourable direction of the bedding planes in relation to the geometry and span of the tunnels; over excavation of the rock pillar and the removal of the remaining rock pillar and old concrete wall before the planned concrete pillar was constructed. Lessons learnt: the importance of adequate ground investigation; the need to follow the sequence of rock support installation in accordance with the design plans during construction.

Indd 10 Geological structures including dykes, faults and shear zones, possibly containing low shear strength minerals, Orientations, spacings, persistences and shear strengths of joint sets in the rock mass, Values and distributions of the compressive strengths and elastic properties of the rock materials, Rock mass classification values and their use in estimating rock mass properties, Lack of knowledge of the behaviour of the rock and rock mass under high stress, Weathered or otherwise weakened rock, High water pressures, High water inflows, including from karst features, Estimated pre-excavation stresses and the effects of geological structures and rock mass anisotropy and heterogeneity on those estimates, High horizontal pre-excavation stresses, even at relatively shallow depths, and Excavation-induced seismicity, including the effects of geological structures.
