Our research employs the concept of building information modelling (BIM) in environmental impact assessment for urban deep excavation projects. BIM is a relatively new technology that facilitates better information integration and management. Many engineering ...

After the collapse of the subway excavation in the Nicoll Highway, extensive in-situ investigations were carried out to identify causes of the accident. The results of detailed studies disclosed that lack of toe-in depth of the diaphragm wall into the stiff ...

An effective seismic retrofit for a sidewall of a cut and cover tunnel has not been established yet. We develop a new method of seismic retrofit for the cut and cover tunnel. We call this “polymer isolation method.” In this method, we insert a thin wall made ...

<p>The communication shows an alternative for introducing soil-structure interaction in the analysis of cut-and-cover tunnels. An uncoupled method is illustrated through two examples representative of the situations found in practice. The main features of ...

Severe damage to six out of a total of 21 subway stations in the Kobe area during the 1995 Hyogoken-nanbu earthquake indicated a need for more attention to be given to the earthquake design of rectangular underground structures. This paper presents work undertaken ...
