Despite the development of new technologies, tunneling through poor, jointed and faulted rock masses is a challenging task for the planners, designers, engineers and the geologists. The association of Central Mining Research Institute (CMRI), India with various hydroelectric project tunnels of the country has helped in collecting vital field data. This information has subsequently been used to develop new approaches and equations for predicting ground conditions, support pressure and closure in tunnels. The paper deals these approaches in addition to the effect of tunnel size on support pressure and ground reaction curve in squeezing conditions.
