Descripción
A reliability analysis is presented of a circular tunnel face driven by a pressurized shield in a highly fractured Hoek?Brown (HB) rock mass. A limit analysis approach is employed to define a limit state function (LSF) based on an advanced rotational mechanism. The objective is to analyze how different reliability methods, different assumptions about distribution types and correlation structures of the random variables, and different tunnel sizes and support pressures influence the computed reliability results. Results indicate that the reliability method has a limited influence on reliability results, hence suggesting that the LSF is not highly nonlinear and that a computationally efficient method can be employed; and that all random variables under consideration are resistance variables, with their assumed distribution types and correlation structures having a significant effect on the reliability results. This emphasizes the importance of an adequate characterization of geotechnical uncertainties for practical applications. This also confirms that the reliability of tunnel face stability increases significantly as the face support increases or the tunnel diameter decreases
