Abstract

We introduced the contact analysis by means of finite element numerical calculation method, as one of an alytical methods for researching contact influence between a shield machine and the surrounding ground. To verify the capability of the method, we performed a preliminary sensitivity study, in which ground behavior due to shield thrusting was simulated, based on the contact analysis. In principle the results of the study were well similar to observed ground behavior.
