MONITORING AND MODELLING OF RIVERSIDE LARGE DEEP EXCAVATION-INDUCED GROUND MOVEMENTS IN CLAYS (2009)
The Riverside large deep excavation of Shanghai international passenger center was 800m long and 100–150m wide with the depth of 13 m. The south long side of the deep excavation was at a distance of 4.6m from the parallel flood wall of Huangpu River. The north long side was 5m away from a historic building. Problems resulted from the large deep excavation was the asymmetric ground movements along the long sides due to the complex surrounding condition and surface surcharge. The monitoring during the excavation provided numerous data to study the characteristics of the ground movement and earth pressure. The numerical modelling was also adopted aim to predict the ground movements.
