GROUND CONDITIONS AROUND AN OLD TUNNEL IN LONDON CLAY

This paper reports the findings of a field study of the ground conditions around an old tunnel in London Clay at a greenfield site in Kennington, South London. Ground conditions were identified from a borehole investigation incorporating a programme of in situ pore water pressure monitoring, geotechnical testing and sampling. Additionally, laboratory classification of the samples and a suite of high-quality triaxial tests were carried out. The results of this investigation are presented and discussed in conjunction with published London Clay data. The presence of a tunnel beneath the site allowed the investigation of its influence on the local soil and groundwater conditions. (A)
