Probabilistic analysis of pressurized tunnels against face stability using collocation-based stochastic response surface method

Abstract : A probabilistic analysis of the face stability of a tunnel driven by a compressed-air pressurized shield is presented. The collocation-based stochastic response surface methodology (CSRSM) is used. The deterministic model employed in the probabilistic analysis is analytical. A translational multiblock collapse mechanism in the framework of the kinematic theorem of limit analysis forms the basis of the analysis. The soil friction angle and cohesion are considered as random variables. CSRSM was first validated by the comparison of the results obtained from the original analytical deterministic model. Then, the influence of the probabilistic characteristics of the uncertain variables was studied. Contrary to the correlation between c and phi and the coefficients of variation of these variables, which have a significant effect on the variability of the critical collapse pressure, the nonnormality of the distributions of the random variables was shown not to have a considerable effect on the distribution of the output.
