Discontinuum and Continuum Modeling of Masjed E Soleyman Power House Cavern
2006 (English)In: Proceedings of the International Symposium of the International Society for Rock Mechanics, Eurock 2006: Eurock 2006 Multiphysics Coupling and Long Term Behaviour in Rock Mechanics, 2006, 689-693 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Numerical modelling is a useful tool to design underground openings. Masjed E Soleyman Power House Cavern is one of the largest caverns in the Middle East. Continuum and discontinuum analyses were performed to evaluate the stability of the cavern. Phase2D and UDEC softwares were used to analyse for continuum and discontinuum media respectively. The displacements obtained from continuum and discontinuum analyses were compared to those measured by Multiple Borehole Extensometers (MPBX).
