This article discusses the face stability of the soil in front of the TBM cutterhead and includes calculations of face stability for 27 cross sections for Mashhad Urban Railway Line 2 with use analytical methods. In the case of the Mashhad Urban Railway Line 2 Project a TBM will be applied with an Earth PressureBalance shield. The objective of this study is to advise on a support pressure which has to be applied during the different phases of the tunnel boring process of Mashhad Urban Railway Line 2.The 27 cross sections have been selected for their spreading over the sections between the stations and the locally present soil overburden. During the shield tunnelling process, subsoil is cut loose by the cuttingwheel. Due to this process a free standing soil wall (cutting face) is created. If the free standing cutting face is not supported, a risk of instability according to a number of failure mechanisms exists. The main failure mechanism, which may occur, is inward collapse or cave in. This failure mechanism may be further divided into local collapse and global collapse. To prevent the cutting face from collapsing, a supporting pressure can be applied by the TBM.
