Furthermore, due to the proximity of the upper level cavern foundations to the roof of the lower level GCT4 caverns, the numerical analyses considered the foundation loads from the upper level caverns which may influence the final lining loads on the lower level structures. One of the most particular areas is the region between sections 1B and 1C as shown in Figure 11. This area was allocated for the installation of ventilation jet fans, and thus did require enlargement of the initially binocular TBM excavation profile to make space for the fan units at the crown.
