hiDCon applications in the ANDRA rock laboratory Bure
In ANDRA's rock laboratory CMHM Bure, tests are performed with flexible tunnel lining systems on a scale of 1.1. Our hiDCon compression elements are used for this purpose. The tunnel sections equipped with our compressible hiDCon elements were intensively instrumented to observe the convergences and the forces in the tunnel shell.
Specifications of the hiDCon elements
Length: 1185 mm
Trapezoidal cross-section: 170 mm / 190 mm
Height: 180 mm
