The main shaft of Mizunami URL is located in fault, and due to the geology hydrological anisotropy is observed. Lining deformation may cause by increase of lining stress with degradation of drain material or aquifer of changes in future. Therefore, study on evaluation method to predict the effect by water pressure change is needed. In this study, by implementing coupled hydraulic and mechanical analyses, validity of methods of analysis is considered as compared to measuring for hydrological anisotropy in the main shaft. According to the result of the study, water pressure dependency was not shown, but the main shaft behavior was simulated taking account of hydrological anisotropy. Also validity of methods of coupled hydraulic and mechanical analyses as deterioration prediction was confirmed.
