### Determination of the initial stress tensor from deformation of underground opening in excavation process

A method for the detection of the initial stress tensor is proposed. The method is based on measuring distances between pairs of points located on the wall of underground opening in the excavation process. This methods is based on solving twelve auxiliary problems in the theory of elasticity with force boundary conditions, which is done using the least squares method. The optimal location of the pairs of points on the wall of underground openings is studied. The pairs must be located so that the...
