The purposes of this study are 1 To incorporate into the finite element computer program for plane strain analyses, the capability to model and analyze a structural support schemes used in the construction and design of tunnels, and b excavation techniques and construction and excavation sequences in underground construction. 2 To evaluate the analytical method developed in 1 by a study of case histories. The report discusses the available information on excavation techniques, construction and excavation sequences, the mechanisms of ground support and the current design techniques for support schemes.
