Investigation of soil-structure interaction for large diameter caissons

Abstract:

Large diameter open caissons are widely adopted in civil engineering infrastructure projects for deep foundations, underground storage and attenuation tanks, pumping stations, and launch and reception shafts for tunnel boring machines. These structures are commonly formed using cast in place reinforced concrete, with the structural self-weight in combination with soil excavation within the caisson, forcing the caisson continuously into the ground. This sinking process presents several engi...
