1. Introduction

The construction of underground works has some certain characteristics: 1. Introduction  the uncertainty of geology  the poor construction condition  the complex surroundings

2. The Principle of Analytic Hierarchy Process Theory 2.1 Establishment of hierarchy process structure 2.2 Establishment of judging matrixes 2.3 Calculation of factor’s weight under the single principle 2.4 Calculation of synthesis weights of bottom elements

2.1 Establishment of hierarchy process structure

valuemeaning 1 Compared to each other, the two elements have the same importance index. 3 Compared to each other, the former is slightly more important than the latter. 5 Compared to each other, the former is obviously more important than the latter. 7 Compared to each other, the former is strongly more important than the latter. 9 Compared to each other, the former is extremely more important than the latter. 2 4 6 8 median count down The ratio of importance of i element and j elememt is Then the ratio of importance of j element and i element is 2.2 Establishment of judging matrixes

consistency index C.I. Compare the factors of A 1, A 2,…A n to get the judging matrix, and do the problem of eigenvalue. Here, n represents the Matrix dimension, that is also the number of elements. The values of ωshould be normalized so as to be the weight of A 1, A 2,…A n under the principle of C k Equation 1 Equation 2 2.3 Calculation of factor’s weight under the single principle

Check the R.I. (random index) Matrix dimension 12345678 R.I.000.520.891.121.261.361.41 Matrix dimension 9101112131415 R.I.1.461.491.521.541.561.581.59 Calculate C.R. (consistency ratio) Equation 3

Also, we may check the consistency step by step. From up to bottom, calculate the weight index of element on k level under the principle of k-1 level. And then multiply the weight indexes of elements on k-1 level under the principle of target level. We may get the synthesis weights of bottom elements. 2.4 Calculation of synthesis weights of bottom elements

3.1 Establishment of hierarchy process structure

Using the Sample method, combined with my knowledge, we may get the judging matrixes between every two factors, and their weights under single principle. Then calculate the weights of bottom elements under the principle of target level from up to bottom. Calculating flow chart Take D 1 as an example.

3.3 Quantification of evaluation model According to the engineering, strata condition, construction group’s quality and ability, the bottom elements are assigned the value of 0~9. Where the value of 0~1 means bad and not applicable, the value of 2~4 means neither good nor bad, and a little applicable, the value of 5~7 means good and applicable, the value of 8~9 means excellent and very applicable. Use weighted average method to get the applicability value. Equation 4 Where A is the applicability value. p is the value of element. ωis the weight.

3.4 Comprehensive evaluation For different construction methods the bottom elements have different values of p, which induces different value of A. The value of A represents the relative applicability value of construction methods. So the one that has the biggest value of A is the most applicable method. Equation 5

4. Project Case Study A subway tunnel lies from Shiqiao road station to Fanyu Square station, which is covered by silty clay and granite in Yanshan period. The fully-weathered granite will be softened when it comes with water, while the compressive strength of little- weathered granite can be up to 120kPa. The line mainly passes the fully-weathered granite. The sides of Fanyu Square station own the little-weathered granite. The project goes through downtown of the city, and the location of pipelines below is very complicated, therefore, it has strict requirements for settlement. The most common methods in the subway tunnel are cut-and-cover method, mining method and shield tunnel method. Due to getting through the downtown of the city, the project is not recommended to use cut-and-cover method. In the following part, we mainly compare the applicability of the mining method and shield tunnel method.

Construc tion method Constru ction speed Environmental benefits The cost Applicability on strata Construction process Cut and cover Faster Causes traffic jam, produces the dust, and has the noise pollution. Low Is used with the restriction that cover depth is less than 7m. The space is huge while constructing. Simple construction, spaced construction condition, but labor-intensive. Shield tunnel Fast The vibration caused by noise is not so big, but it is hard to totally prevent the settlement of ground, especially in the saturated soft clay. High, but has the tendency of reduction Is used in the soft clay, soft rock and so on. Not influenced by the weather and outside. High automatic, low intensity of labor force. Hard to correct in direction. Hard to continue in shallow soil. Hard to continue in small curvature radius. Mining method Slow Has the damage to rock around, and causes a great impact on the environment. Lower Is used in rock, hand strata and nonsensitive strata on variability. Should have strong control on over-excavation or less- excavation. High risk of construction. Poor working condition. Analysis on three construction methods

From the analysis above, we may see the applicability value of shield tunnel method is 6.44, while the one of mining method is merely 4.31. So as for this project, the shield tunnel method is better, and should be considered first.

Conclusion Based on the risk analysis theory and Analytic Hierarchy Process theory, the authors promote an evaluation model for the decision of construction methods in the underground works. In the end, a project case is cited to test the model. The merits of this model are quantification of the qualitative results, digitalization of inaccuracy, and rationalization of the evaluation process. The model in the paper can be promoted to other projects, in the case of giving the original value of p based on the specific project. Thus we may get the proper construction method by equation 2. While, because the establishment of judging matrix relies on people’s subjective sense, to some degree the error of the model is enlarged. Besides, the 41elements cannot reflect all risk factors in all projects, because of the complexity of the projects. Both of them call for further research.
