The following papers were presented at Sessions 1, 2 and 3 of the Conference on Large Ground Movements and Structures: Session 1--Measurement and analysis of residual mining subsidence movements (Collins, BJ); Least squares analysis of ground displacement observations, (Salamon, MDG); Measurement of surface displacements caused by extraction of coal pillars, (Oravecz, KI). Session 2--Incipient failure and demolition of two-storey dwellings due to large ground movements, (Thorburn, S and Reid, WM); Analysis and prediction of ground subsidence due to coal mine entry collapse, (Stephenson, RW and Aughenbaugh, NB); Sources of information for preliminary site investigation in old coal-mining areas, (Symons, MV); The effects of large ground movements resulting from brown coal open-cut excavations in the latrobe valley, Victoria, (Hutchings, R, Fajdiga, M and Raisbeck, D); Building response to ground movements caused by an 18 M deep excavation (Boscardin, MD and O'Rourke, TD). Session 3--The role of linear models in the estimation of surface ground movements induced by mining tabular deposits, (Salamon, MDG); A three-dimensional system for the prediction of surface movements due to mining, (Burton, D); Settlement of backfill at Horsely restored opencast coal mining site, (Charles, JA, Naismith, WA and Burford, D); Model studies of negative friction on pile groups, (Denman, KJ, Nicholls, RA and Symons, MV); and, The prediction of soil displacements and design of controlled water test programme for ground supported tanks on soft soils, (Sinclair, TJE and Cundall, PA). /TRRL/
