Abstract
Excessive rock pressure may cause the failure of tile tunnel support r esulting in large rock deformations. This phenomenon is referred to as squeezing rock behaviour. After discussion of the factors affecting s queezing the relation between rock deformation and rock pressure is de scribed. The paper further deals with widely applied methods of excava tion and support measures in squeezing rock.
