Novel apparatus for generating ground movements around sequential twin tunnels in over-consolidated clay

Divall, S. and Goodey, R.J. (2012). Novel apparatus for generating ground movements around sequential twin tunnels in over-consolidated clay. Online publication by Proceedings of the ICE - Geotechnical Engineering, pp. 10-11.

Abstract

The tests consisted of a sequential twin-tunnel construction with varied centre-to-centre spacing in overconsolidated clay. Relatively complex apparatus facilitated a predefined volume loss whilst monitoring surface settlement, tunnel support pressures and pore-water pressures. The surface data were assessed against published estimation methods with the results highlighting some inconsistencies.
