TOWARDS DESCRIBING FULL-SECTION DEFORMATIONS USING TERRESTRIAL LASER SCANNING IN THE BADALING TUNNEL (CHINA)
Keywords: Terrestrial Laser Scanning, Tunnel, Deformation Measurement, Point Clouds
Abstract. This paper focuses on the analysis of point clouds from terrestrial laser scanning to interpret possible deformations of the new Badaling Tunnel that was built for the Winter Olympics 2022 in the nearby of Beijing, China. A reference framework is established to compare data corresponding to various days with blocks of uniform columns and rows from an estimated tunnel axis. Filling holes and detecting outliers are performed for quasi-planar estimation, and refinement transformation is used to adjust the data errors between different days. Finally, the full-section deformations are detected in the form of distance discrepancies of representative points and are verified against total station measurements.
