Abstract [en]

Inner lining system in tunnels is a method to prevent water ingress and forming of ice in the traffic area. A solution that is common in Norway is based on stretching a sealing membrane between rock anchorages that forms a gap to the primary rock strengthening. The membrane is in turn protected by a layer of shotcrete towards the traffic area. The rock strengthening is designed to resist all loads from the rock mass independent of the inner lining system. A problem is however how to perform inspections and conditional assessment of the rock strengthening, since the gap is usually small. Other topics are what loads the inner lining system should be designed for. In TRVK Tunnel 11, the load of a local falling rock of 600 kg is stipulated, assuming to act on a surface of 0.2×0.2 m. Furthermore, the inner lining system should be designed to resist what is connoted as an extreme rock load of 6 metric ton, acting on a 1×1 m area, even when a primary rock strengthening is present. Similar inner lining systems have been used in e.g. Norra länken, parts of Citybanan in Stockholm and is planned to be used for the Stockholm Bypass project.

In the present paper, results from a recent research project are presented, aiming at investigating the structural manner of action of the aforementioned inner lining system. A series of concrete slabs have been tested, both until static failure and with a 600 kg drop weight from different heights. All tested slabs resulted in flexural failure and showed a significant ductility. For several of the slabs tested for impact loading, significant spalling from the soffit was obtained, at the most corresponding to a mass of 16 kg. Three of the slabs tested for impact load were manufactured with an outer layer of steel fibre reinforced shotcrete. None of these slabs showed any significant spalling, despite a free fall height up to 2 m.

Several FE-analyses have also been performed, accounting for the nonlinear material properties of concrete. The results showed good agreement with the conducted experiments, both regarding static loading, cracking and impact load. A similar analysis was also done for the whole inner lining system. The results showed a larger load capacity compared to the experiments, but still with a rather localised failure.
