Based on the field data obtained from 12 Indian and several NGI case histories, a semi-empirical relation has been proposed in this paper for & termination of “mobilised” cohesion around underground openings. It has been found that mobilisation of cohesion takes place at higher values around underground openings than the values previously suggested and the values obtained from block shear tests. A strength enhancement factor has been suggested which is to be multiplied with the cohesion parameter obtained from block shear tests for practical application. This apparent strength enhancement may be attributed to anisotropy in strength, statistical variation in strength and confining conditions around tunnels.
