Tunnels are often preferred for underground transportation systems in densely populated areas. It is almost inevitable to excavate a tunnel close to existing pile foundations in these areas. Since many previous studies mainly focus on the responses of single piles subjected to tunnelling, the effects of the tunnelling on pile groups are not well understood. In this study, two three-dimensional centrifuge tests were carried out to investigate settlement and load transfer mechanism of a pile… CONTINUE READING
