A 20 year history of stress and strain in a shotcrete primary lining
Managing Director - Inbye Engineering
Benoit will present a 20 year history of stress and strain in a shotcrete primary lining. How does load come onto a shotcrete primary lining as it is advanced? What are the effects of cross-passage construction, underpassing and secondary lining installation? What influence do temperature changes, shrinkage and creep have on the stresses and strains? What happens to ground and groundwater loads on a primary lining in the long-term? Is there load-sharing between primary and secondary linings? All these questions and more will be answered in this presentation.
