Session Start Date

Abstract

Soil response data and the results of soil deformation analyses are presented for twin tube rapid transit tunnels constructed in soil. The data collection and analyses were performed during the construction of the Lexington Market Line Tunnels in Baltimore, MD between 1977 and 1980. Sources and volumes of ground loss around the tunnels and the resulting ground surface settlement patterns are discussed. Analyses are presented indicating that substantial volume expansion of the soil over the tunnel occurred during construction. Comparisons are made to similar analyses of data reported in the literature for other tunnels driven in similar geologic conditions.

Ground Response, Baltimore Lexington Market Tunnels

Soil response data and the results of soil deformation analyses are presented for twin tube rapid transit tunnels constructed in soil. The data collection and analyses were performed during the construction of the Lexington Market Line Tunnels in Baltimore, MD between 1977 and 1980. Sources and volumes of ground loss around the tunnels and the resulting ground surface settlement patterns are discussed. Analyses are presented indicating that substantial volume expansion of the soil over the tunnel occurred during construction. Comparisons are made to similar analyses of data reported in the literature for other tunnels driven in similar geologic conditions.
