INTEGRATED TOOLS FOR PREDICTING, MONITORING AND CONTROLLING GROUND MOVEMENTS DUE TO EXCAVATIONS (2009)
Monitoring data that can be used in conjunction with current numerical capabilities are discussed, including laser scanning and webcams for developing an accurate record of construction activities, and automated and remote instrumentations to measure movements ...
Filed under: Soil Mechanics - Soil MonitoringReference: NSF Engineering Research and Innovation Conference, Honolulu, Hawaii, June 2009
Finno R. J. , Langousis M. et al.
The real time monitoring for the Olive 8 project in Seattle is described. This paper summarizes the philosophy behind the real-time instrumentation and shows how the total station data complemented the conventional inclinometer data

This paper presents the results of 159 finite element simulations conducted to define the effects of excavation geometry, i.e., length, width and depth of excavation, wall system stiffness, and factor of safety against basal heave on the 3-dimensional ground ...
Several three-dimensional effects were observed in the performance monitoring data collected during excavation for the Ford Engineering Design Center (FEDC) in Evanston, Illinois. These responses are related to lateral deformations of the soil around the excavation ...
Numerical considerations are described, including the selection of the type of finite element formulation, the initial stress conditions with emphasis on urban environments, the importance a reasonable representation of the construction process, and factors ...

<p>A new simple model for representing buildings is presented to allow a designer to make realistic simplifications to a building system that is consistent with major features of the structure so that the response to ground movements can be adequately represented.</p ...

Finno R. J. , Molnar K. M. et al.
A predictive process for determining the stresses occuring in a pipeline djacent to deep braced excavations is presented. The method can be used to establish rational criteria for determining allowable maximum values for excavation induced ground movement ...
Micropiles socketed in rock designed based on end bearing rather than interface shear.
