BEHAVIOUR OF A PROPPED EMBEDDED RETAINING WALL IN A STIFF CLAY AT BELL COMMON TUNNEL

Extensive instrumentation has been installed at Bell Common tunnel to monitor the performance of a propped embedded retaining wall and the behaviour of the stiff clay in which it has been constructed. Earth and porewater pressures, ground and wall movements, and roof loading have been monitored during the construction period. The deformations and stresses measured at each stage of construction are presented and the performance of the wall is discussed. (TRRL)
