|Abstract:||Wellbore and tunnel problems are of true triaxial stress state, even if the ground is under axisymmetric loading condition. A closed-form analytical solution is proposed using Drucker–Prager failure criterion. The solutions are obtained for rock mass exhibiting elastic–perfectly plastic or elastic–brittle–plastic behaviour. The proposed solution is then compared with the finite element analysis (FE-analysis) results. Parametric studies are also carried out. The results of the proposed analytical solution are found to be in good agreement with the FE-analysis results. The proposed analytical solution can thus be used for predicting the stresses and deformation of underground circular openings considering true triaxial stress state. © 2019, Indian Geotechnical Society.|
