Description Upres is for designing tunnels and pipe lining using Dr. H. Einstein's method ("Improved Design of Tunnel Supports," prepared for the U.S. Department of Transportation, 1980). It can calculate the stress redistribution in soil, the moment, the thrust, and the deflection in the pipe or tunnel. Full slip (friction between soil and structure) or no slip conditions are considered. Moment and thrust diagrams can be viewed and printed. It is suitable for most elastic closed form models such as pipe and circular tunnels buried underground. The structural materials can be concrete, wood, shotcrete, brick, or steel. The structure can be built by segment panels, an I-beam and lagging system, or a continuous circular system. Even though the program is an elastic solution, the results match well with Finite Element Analysis solutions.
