Abstract:

The paper presents a real case of a complex underground construction problem, in urban environment, analyzed with a modern numerical simulation tool. The goal of the simulation is to identify surface settlements induced by a multi-stage excavation/construction of a tunnel system in urban area. The problems encountered include: a complex 3D geometry, accounting properly for a complex initial state, and modeling of an arch-pipes-parasol system, among others. A wide range of options available in the finite element software Z_SOIL 3D are presented based on the example.
