Abstract [en]

Numerical modeling is a useful tool to design underground openings. Masjed ESoleyman Power House Cavern is one of the largest caverns in the Middle East. Ramamurthy introduced an empirical equivalent media in 1994. Ramamurthy Equivalentmedia was applied to a Finite element analysis. Phase2D software was used to analyzecontinuum media. The displacements obtained from Equivalent continuum analysis were compared to those measured by MultiPoint Borehole Extensometers (MPBX).
