The values of friction angle and dilation angle of rock mass are the effective factors on the visco-elastic displacements around underground structures. The present parametric study was conducted to determine the effect of dilation angle of discontinuities and intact rock, friction angle of discontinuities on the values of visco-elastic displacements based on non-associated flow rule and elasto-viscoplastic theory and statistical Yates method. Elasto-visco plastic analyses of Siah Bisheh Power Cavern have been performed according to non-associated flow rule by FESTO3. In the Yates method, the direct effect and interaction of the concerned parameters on displacements and sensitivity of effects are considered. On the basis of the results, an optimum value can be chosen for the studied parameter. It is found that, the variation of the dilation angle of intact rock and friction angle of discontinuities induced similar variation in the values of displacements, but the sensitivity of these variations is not noticeable. Therefore it is concluded that these parameters are not much effective on the result (visco-plastic displacements). However, changing the dilation angle of discontinuities caused considerable variation in the visco-plastic displacements indicating a direct effect of this parameter on the results. To find out the optimum value of this parameter, the effect of it's variation on the visco-plastic displacement around the cavern is discussed.
