Abstract

Based on the discrete element software (UDEC), the variation laws of the seepage field and displacement field in water-resistant strata between karst cavity with high-pressuried water and tunnel are simulated and analyzed in thin limestone strata. The results show that under the same karst water pressure, when the thickness of water-resistant strata is 2m, the water-resistant strata is in the whole collapse tendency and the water-inrush channels are formed in a short time, but when the thickness of water-resistant strata is 4m, the rock mass in the 1m range above the tunnel vault is slumped to form a collapse arch, which is less prone to water-inrush.
