Project Stories | Support capacity checking for the fan plant structure

2020.04.07

About Project

Two types of analysis were performed based on different 3D model files. The full underground structure was modeled to monitor the initial support capacity including rock bolts and shotcrete, at structural level. A construction sequences analysis of the fan plant was ran to obtain the general stability and settlements of the soil layers, at geotechnical level.
