THE CONSTRUCTION AND FIELD MONITORING OF A DEEP EXCAVATION IN SOFT SOILS (2009)
This paper describes the construction of a 40m multi-propped deep excavation in the downtown area of Shanghai, China and the interpretation of the monitoring data. The entire excavation was 263m in length, 23m wide and 38–41m deep. The excavation was divided in three sections, i.e., the eastern, the middle, and the western pits. Noticeable characteristic of this project are the excavation of a nearly 60m wide section embedded in the Huangpu River and the presence of many sensitive buildings nearby. In this paper, some construction details of the excavation and the monitoring results are presented and discussed.
