East Side Access Manhattan 35 Figure 13. (Left) Continuum liner used in lower-bound solution, (Right) fixed excavation boundary used in upper-bound solution only normal contact stresses can develop between the liner and the rock. Shear effects are expected to be small in relation to the normal. As such, this analysis is not strain compatible. The “upper-bound” solution stipulates that the internal boundary of the excavation is completely fixed in the two dimensions. This simulates an “infinitely” stiff liner which also cannot move at all inside the rock mass.

East Side Access Manhattan 21 This established the revised plan for the interlocking caverns. 45 m (8 feet). The cross-section geometry for the interlocking caverns was set by maintaining train clearances and the method of lining the caverns. In the original Contract Documents it was envisaged the caverns would be lined with reinforced cast-in-place concrete using a semi-hydraulic adjustable form system with constant crown and shoulder radii, as more fully described below. The Initial Ground Support is designed to prevent failure of rock blocks from the crown and sidewalls of the caverns, tunnels and shafts with excavation support consisting of combinations of rock bolts and dowels, welded wire fabric, channels, mine straps, steel ribs with lagging, and shotcrete.
