dc.description.abstractThe particular configuration of segmental tunnel linings produces that its structural response in front of usual design loads could present a significant three dimensionality due to the structural interaction between adjacent rings (coupling effects). The present paper studies the phenomena associated to coupling effects, determines the main involved parameters and analyzes their influence on a real lining structural response by means of a 3D numerical model. The comparison with the usual plane models currently employed in linings designs provide significant conclusions about the coupling effects implications and the conditions in which become more relevant.
