Said Mohammad et al., Interpretation of Rock Mass Behaviour via "Multiple Graph" Approach: Adit P-C9 of the Alborz Tunnel, Proceedings of the 18th Coal Operators' Conference, Mining Engineering, University of Wollongong, 7-9 February 2018, 119-123.


The current paper focuses on the application and advantages of the “multiple graph” approach for interpretation of surrounding rock mass behaviour in underground structures. Behaviour of the Argillitic rock mass surrounding Adit P-CP9 of the Alborz Tunnel was interpreted via the “multiple graph” approach resulting in interestingly accurate prediction. The accuracy of the estimation was later observed in the excavation process and afterwards. The observed results are presented which verifies that the “multiple graph” approach can cope satisfactorily with various geological conditions.
