The Tunnel Seismic Prediction (TSP) method was used to study geological hazards ahead in Zagros long tunnel. In this study, we present elastic moduli predicted by the TSP method in six consecutive TSP campaigns and validate predictions by measured TBM parameters. According to the results, TSP predicted two fractured zones with low elastic moduli values where TBM parameters including torque and thrust drop and penetration rate rise significantly. The strong correlation between TSP predictions and TBM parameters verifies the reliability of TSP results in this project.
