In karst formation area, the tunnel support system is an important factor for the tunnel safety during operation. It is also not easy to determine the tunnel supporting system in the design stage. Therefore, it is necessary to standardize the tunnel supporting system in uncertain ground condition. This paper presents the standardization of the tunnel supporting systems to be adopt in karst formation. For the tunnel planned in the project area, karst features and the expected scenarios in the tunnel area were developed based on the results of the geological and geotechnical assessment. In order to provide specific supporting system and construction details for a wide range of possible karst features, the generalized typical support systems are developed according to the classification of karst features. In addition, the initial support systems and construction sequence for each karst feature are also presented in this paper.
