Design of pressure tunnels using a finite element model

In this study, a two-dimensional plane strain finite element model is used for the prediction of mechanical and hydraulic behaviour of pre-stressed concrete-lined pressure tunnels. Results obtained from numerical models are presented and compared with the one calculated using analytival solutions.
