Abstract
The elastic-nonlinear softening-residual plastic surrounding rock mode1 is analyzed. According to the total strain theory, the relationship between equivalent stress and equivalent strain is deduced from uniaxial compression of practical rock. The relational expressions are related with triaxial stress (σθ, σz, and σr) and triaxial strain (εθ, εz, and εr) of surrounding rock. The mechanism of load bearing and acting relation between surrounding rock and support are studied. Stress and displacement distribution of broken zone, plastic zone and elastic zone of tunnel are presented out. The ultimate bearing capacity of surrounding rock is given. The critical pressure leading to yield firstly of surrounding rock that caused by inner pressure is introduced. The obtained results are more closely to actual values of surrounding rock than Kastner's formula. The ideal plastic model and the brittle model are special cases of the proposed solution.
