2-dimensional analysis of settlement damage to masonry buildings caused by tunnelling

Abstract:

In current practice, estimating the effects of tunnel construction in soft ground beneath an existing building is usually a two-stage procedure, where interaction between the ground and the building is ignored. This paper describes a study of tunnelling-induced settlement damage to masonry buildings, using a numerical model, in which interaction is included. 2-dimensional finite elements(FEs) are used with non-linear material models for the soil and for a masonry facade. The excavation of a t...
