  • In order to determine the optimal number of monitoring points in single-track tunnel lining, this thesis compares and evaluates the results of two cases: when the tunnel lining is modeled into a simple beam form and then is applied to 1) the tunnel lining inverse analysis program, and to 2) the commercially-used program. The displacement and stress of specific tunnel lining cross-sections are determined by entering the load conditions into the commercially-used program for tunnel interpretations. In doing so, two cases were assumed: where a symmetrically-distributed load was acting upon the tunnel lining of a single-track tunnel and where an asymmetrically-distributed load was in action. By comparing the computed displacement with the stress and displacement determined by entering side numbers 3, 5, and 7 into the tunnel lining inverse analysis program, the optimal number of monitoring points is determined. From the results of the research, it can be inferred that the number of monitoring points needs to be at least 5 points, considering the efficiency of monitoring in practice and the loss-and-damage rate of tunnel monitoring.
