This webinar will show how to use the Finite Element Method (FEM) to simulate the staged construction of a tunnel by a Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) in soft soil.

The tunnel support system will have double lining, prefabricated segments and sliding formwork.

The webinar will also discuss important issues of excavating tunnels on soft soil, like the effect of regional subsidence.

Lastly, it will cover why consolidation analysis was done to account for pore pressure reduction through drains.
