Research on Chaotic Characteristic for Settlement of Road-Tunnel Composite Structure



According to settlement of road-tunnel composite structure, relying on the Connecting Engineering Project at Shenzhen of Shenzhen-Hong Kong Western Corridor Project, settlement time series is analyzed by chaotic dynamics. Combining with phase space reconstruction, the correlation dimension, the maximum Lyapunov exponent, entropy and complexity of the road-tunnel composite structure system is studied. The results show that the settlement development of road-tunnel composite structure is still stable and predictable completely, of which chaotic characteristic is not obvious. This research has a great significance for the settlement prediction and control of the similar projects.
