The crystal blockage of tunnel drainage pipe seriously affects the smoothness of the whole drainage system. Therefore, it is very important to effectively prevent crystal plugging in tunnel drainage system to ensure the safety and stability of lining structure during tunnel operation. Based on the macro force and displacement characteristics of villus, the optimization of villus diameter and villus length of flocked drainage pipe at low flow rate was studied by numerical simulation. The results show that: there is a difference of 1-2 orders of magnitude between the 3-D displacements of the bottom villus and one order of magnitude between the 3-D displacements of the side villus of the flocked drainage pipe; with the increase of villus length, the 3-D displacement of villus increased parabola and with the increase of villus diameter, the 3-D displacement of villus decreased gradually; the results show that the first and third principal stresses of the bottom villus increase linearly with the increase of villus length, while the first and third principal stresses of the side villus increase parabola with the increase of villus length; when the flow rate is 2 cm/s, the diameter of villus is 0.6 mm and the length of villus is 20 mm. Flocking drainage pipe anti crystal plugging technology fills the blank of tunnel drainage pipe anti crystal plugging research. This technology can reduce the maintenance cost of tunnel drainage system during operation, and ensure the safe and normal operation of the tunnel.
