Abstract

The technical characteristics of a deep supported excavation project using anchored diaphragm walls and the measured (by inclinometers) behavior of the soil retaining system are presented. The measured behavior is then compared with the predicted behavior using a finite element model of the excavation. The comparison shows a good agreement in a location where the soil profile is well defined. However, differences in the magnitude of the displacements were observed when the information on the soil profile was incomplete due to the variability of the deposits on site.

Deep Supported Excavation in Difficult Ground Conditions in the City of Patras, Greece — Measured vs. Predicted Behavior

New York, New York

The technical characteristics of a deep supported excavation project using anchored diaphragm walls and the measured (by inclinometers) behavior of the soil retaining system are presented. The measured behavior is then compared with the predicted behavior using a finite element model of the excavation. The comparison shows a good agreement in a location where the soil profile is well defined. However, differences in the magnitude of the displacements were observed when the information on the soil profile was incomplete due to the variability of the deposits on site.
