Batch Compute

Batch Compute can quickly generate results or several RocSupport model files.

To access the Batch Compute feature of RocSupport:

  1. Select File > Batch Compute compute icon from the menu.
  2. The Batch Compute dialog will appear allowing you to:
    • Add files to the File Queue for computing
    • Select an Output File Format
    • See the progress of Completed Files
    • See if any issues occured during reading, computing, or writing under Warnings

Input File

Batch Compute several Deterministic, and/or Probabilistic analysis models using saved RocSupport (.rsp) model files.

To add RocSupport model files to the File Queue:

  • Select the Open Open FolderIconbutton to choose individual model files.

Output File

When Batch Compute is run, a directory by the same name as the input model file will be created in the same directory as the input model file. This directory contains the computed results for the input model file.

The results of each model file can be output to either:

  • Comma delimited text file (.txt), or
  • Excel (.xlsx) format

The text output file will be saved inside the Batch Compute Results Text Files subdirectory. The Excel output file will be saved inside the Batch Compute Results Excel Files subdirectory. One "Results" file is generated per model computed.

In a Probabilistic analysis where more than one tunnel case can be considered, the output file is formatted to write one tunnel case per row.

The output file contains the following data:

  • Tunnel ID
  • Safety Factor
  • Mobilized Support
  • Tunnel radius
  • Insitu Stress
  • Tunnel Depth
  • Roc Unit Weight
  • Plastic Zone Radius
  • Tunnel Convergence
  • Tunnel Convergence at the tunnel face
  • Wall Displacement
  • Wall displacement at the tunnel face
  • Critical Pressure
  • Young's Modulus
  • Poisson's Ratio
  • Intact Young's Modulus

  • If no support is added, Safety Factor = N/A and Mobilized Support = N/A.
  • The applicability of some computed values depend on the solution method, the modulus estimation method for generalized Hoek-Brown materials, and support parameters selected.
