COLLABORATIVE RESEARCH CENTER SFB 837
INTERACTION MODELING IN MECHANIZED TUNNELING

Because of the inherent possibility of a tunnel collapse, with the corresponding disasterous consequences, it is important to know the geological situation and the effects of the tunneling process at the excavation site as good as possible. This, and the requirements of safety regulations and environmental impacts makes tunneling an expensive untertaking. One aim of the new SFB 837 "Interaction models for mechanized tunneling" is thus to create advanced and distributed numerical models, computer-based simulations and design concepts to represent the complex interactions between ground models, the shield machine, tunnel linings, suface development and the construction operation in a realistic and effiicient manner. Researchers in the SFB 837 can profit from the long range of experience in computer simulation and tunneling that has been acquired here in Bochum for many years.


The Chair of Computational Engineering in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering is responsible for 4 sub-projects within the SFB 837:
