Norra Lšnken 3D Stability Analysis
Project: Norra Lšnken 3D Stability Analysis
Client: Trafikverket (The Swedish Transport Administration) and Sweco
Description: The Northern Link (Norra Lšnken) will be part of a major road system surrounding the Stockholm metropolitan area. As part of the design work for this project, Itasca Consultants AB and Itasca Consultants S.A.S. has performed a three-dimensional numerical study to analyze of the effect of a large surface load being applied on top of a tunnel intersection with low (4 m) rock cover. The analyses were performed using FLAC3D, and the model was constructed with KUBRIX mesh generator using in conjunction with the Rhino CAD package.
