The influence of operational stiffness of structural components on the performance of deep excavations

Abstract:

The performance of deep excavations is affected by the stiffness of various structural components (e.g. retaining walls, horizontal struts, vertical piles). For reinforced concrete structures, the operational stiffness (i.e. the bending stiffness and axial stiffness under working conditions) may be different from the nominal stiffness due to imperfections in the concrete (e.g. cracks). In addition, the operational stiffness may change as the excavation proceeds. To investigate how the operati...
