dc.description.abstract In February 2012, a serious accident which resulted in five fatalities happened during a TBM-tunnel construction under the seabed in Japan. The cause of the accident appeared to be due to the Key-segment slipping out of the segment ring by the thrusting tailskin (wire brushes) of the TBM into the segment ring. This resulted in the collapse of the rings, causing the seabed ground and seawater to flow into the tunnel. We investigated how thin and thick segments without any circumferential joints behave under isotropic and anisotropic pressures using small-scale physical model. In the model tests, pressures were applied to the surroundings of the segment rings and the strains at each segment were measured in order to evaluate the damage. In addition, cases where lubrication on the contact area between the K- and B-segments was present or not were investigated and their discrete element simulations were also conducted. en
