AASHTO Steel Tunnel Liner Plate

Smooth-back tunnel liner plate in soft ground


Cooper E8
Job Name: Subject: Cover (ft)
Job Number: Originator: Checker: ###
###
Purpose: ###
To design an initial liner for a tunnel using steel liner plate. ###
Hoop thrust capacity of the liner is checked for a specified overburden pressure, hydrostatic pressure, and live load pressure, which ###
consists of either AASHTO H-20 Truck Loading or Cooper E-80 Train Loading (Per AREMA). ###
###
Assumptions/Limitations: ###
Surrounding ground consists of granular or cohesive soil (Not rock)
Tunnel support is 2-flange or 4-flange, smooth-back liner plate. Cooper E8
Liner plate joints (flanges) are non-compact (not slender)

Validation
XLC formulae and peer review provide verification of intended functionality.
