BOUNDS FOR TUNNEL ROOF SUPPORT. — Northwestern

A modified Mohr-Coulomb yield criterion and its associated flow rule are used in a plane strain approach to predict lower and/or upper bounds for the supporting forces necessary to prevent a homogeneous isotropic rock mass, either intact or with granular particulate characteristics, from breaking into a horizontal circular or rectangular tunnel.
