LF = N/Nt, Mair et al (1981).

uriIe ossa ue This paper proposes an expression relating LF and the short term volume
loss (VL) in overconsolidated clay, which may be used for design purposes.

into the following components (Attewell and Farmer, 1974, Cording and

intrusion or face "take")
2. Radial movements around the shield due to an overcut or the use of a
bead on the shield, or due to "diving", "pitching", "yawing" or

3. Radial movements due to temporary loss of support at the rear of the
shield or tunnelling machine during lining construction (only where no

lower values of C/D (say less than 1) the ground movements may not
conform to those commonly observed for deeper tunnels and the linear
relationship suggested in Figure 4 may not be valid for such cases.
