Title: Stability of excavation face of shield-driven tunnels and its influence on adjacent piles (pipelines)

Abstract: With the advantages of fast speed, punctuality and large capacity, the urban subway is highly prized by citizens as an essential means to relieve urban traffic pressure. Urban subway construction is mainly using the shield method. When shield-driven tunnels passe through complex areas such as multi-interbedded formation and areas adjacent to piles (pipelines), it is easy to cause instability of the excavation face, soil deformation and affect the regular use of surrounding buildings and structures. Due to deficient research on the above problems, this paper takes the Nanning Metro as an example to study the stability of the excavation face of shield-driven tunnels and its influence on adjacent piles (pipelines). The 3D visualization modeling based on transparent soil, the micro-discrete element simulation, the large-scale centrifugal model test, and the 3D finite element analysis are adopted in this research. The research contents mainly include the stability of excavation face under multi-interbedded stratum, the influence of shield-driven tunnels with different buried depths on adjacent pile groups, and the impact of shield-driven twin tunnels with different buried depths and different excavation sequences on adjacent buried pipelines.
