Synopsis The United Kingdom Government offered a large area on Middle Chalk near Thetford in Norfolk a possible site for a giant proton accelerator for CERN. This 300 GeV machine has very stringent requirements for the ground stability and deformation under load which are outside normal civil engineering experience and practice. The Paper describes how the suitability of the site in meeting these very exacting specifications was assessed. The load-deformation properties of the chalk mass were… Expand
