BE22: Tunneling - Ground Reaction Line

This problem consists of a cylindrical hole in an infinite medium, subjected to a hydrostatic in-situ state, as shown in the figure. The material is assumed to be linearly elastic-perfectly plastic with a failure surface defined by the Mohr-Coulomb criterion and with zero volume change during plastic flow. The calculation of the ground reaction line is performed and compared to the analytical solution according to Hoek.This is one example of our Verification Manual.
