Title Avoiding damage caused by soil-structure interaction : lessons learnt from case histories / editors, Richard Kastner, Oddvar Kjekstad and Jamie Standing
Published London : Thomas Telford, 2003


Description 1 online resource (77 pages) : illustrations
Contents Background to the study -- Defining and predicting ground movements and building damage -- Damage arising from the construction of new foundations -- Damage resulting from deep excavations -- Tunnelling-induced ground movements and damage -- Damage resulting from slope instability -- Overall conclusions and recommendations relating to damage -- References -- COST C7 Working Group C: members' details
Summary Increasing development in the urban environment and supporting infrastructure systems has necessitated a greater use of underground space and sites that were hitherto judges to be not economically viable (e.g. because of difficult ground conditions). This presents many challenges in terms of planning, design and construction as well as the protection of existing buildings
