7. Liverpool Street Powerlink Crossrail project :
Activities Performed Geotechnical interpretation and Finite Element (FE) modelling of primary and secondary SCL support for the independent Category III design check on a new
SCL cable tunnel and shaft linking into existing underground infrastructure at
Liverpool Street Station. Numerical modelling was carried out using the Plaxis software to model the excavation and installation of SCL support in several stages and to assess the forces and moments exerted on primary and secondary support.
Analysis included consideration of the transmission of loading onto the sprayed lining against earlyage strength gain of the SCL as well as modelling of permanent
SCL support under longterm loading. Sprayed concrete linings for the shaft and tunnel are to be formed using steel fibre reinforced concrete.

8. Brogborough Lake lightweight fill embankent :
Activities Performed Carry out a back analysis of the side road embankment using the monitoring data available. Forward project the Plaxis model to provide a prediction of ongoing settlements after the surcharge has been removed and what affect any future movements would have on the adjacent piles.

9. Klang Valley MRT project (Red Line) :
Activities Performed Evaluation of the geotechnical parameters, listing the necessary assumptions and deciding the construction sequences for twin tunnels running parallel.

Outputs required from both of the Plaxis models are as follows  :
Determining the minimum spacing that can be suitably achieved between the tunnels in both the cases stated above.
Evaluations of moments and forces that will act on/within the segmental concrete lining. Determination of deformation that occurs in the liners.
Determining forces in segmental concrete liners for different cases of tunnels excavation for variations in extent of ground cover, different zones of soil properties, fluctuating GWT position. Considering the impacts during tunnel excavation on existing tunnels, foundations for high rise buildings and Monorails.
Analysis of a big cavern excavation by NATM method providing sprayed concrete lining as primary support and castin situ lining as final support. The whole excavation sequences was analysed using Plaxis2D and necessary forces in liners were determined during intermediate stages of excavation.
Determining forces in sprayed concrete lining provided during excavation of crosspassages between underground stations.

10. Crossrail C121 – Independent Check (Bond Street Station/Liverpool Street Station/Limmo Shaft) :
Activities Performed Checking of the Sprayed Concrete Lining works for Platform Tunnels, Crossovers, Adits as part of the C121 package of the Crossrail Project. Design work for C121 is currently being carried out by consultants Mott MacDonald. The Category 3 check is undertaken to verify the adequacy of the design and proposed method of construction, and to confirm compliance with the relevant design standards (BS codes & Eurocode Standards).

KeyTasks :
1) Review of Conceptual Design Statement, Drawings, Specifications, and Durability Assessment Report.

2) Independent Design Analysis  :
FEM analysis to adequately simulate the excavation along with the installation of the Sprayed Concrete Lining in different stages of construction (using NATM technique), 2D Finite Element (2DFE) analysis will be used.

2DFE analysis will be used to evaluate the interactions between the ground and the tunnel lining, as well as to assess the stability of the excavation boundary during construction stages. It will also be used to determine the axial forces, shear forces and bending moments within the Sprayed Concrete Primary and Secondary Lining.

3) Lining Structural Capacity Checks  :
Lining sections and structural members are to be checked in accordance with the Crossrail Civil Engineering Design Standards (CRSTD303). All new linings and associated structures are to be checked using the Limit State Design Principle.
The structural capacity of the underground SCL structures will be calculated according to Euro Code 2 (EN1992 Design of Concrete Structures). Construction tolerances for tunnels to be used in assessing lining capacity will be taken from the latest revision of the BTS Specification for Tunnelling. The lining structural capacity will be checked using capacity limit curves using Axial Stress – Bending

4.Moment interaction diagrams. The Axial Stress and Bending Moment values will be obtained from the output data of FE software i.e. Phase2.
