Abstract: The goal of this article is to determine rational constructional and technological options for the development of underground space, in particular, the arrangement of underground parking lots under the specific hydrogeological conditions of Dnipro city...

Deformation Responses and Mechanical Mechanism of Existing Tunnel due to New Building Construction.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Advances in Civil Engineering. 2/4/2021, p1-14. 14p.

Abstract: This study mainly investigated the variation law and mechanical mechanism of surrounding earth pressure and deformation of an existing tunnel, caused by dewatering, foundation excavation, building loading, and groundwater recovery. According to differe...

Bridge Responses Induced by Adjacent Subway Station Construction Using Shallow Tunneling Method.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Advances in Civil Engineering. 11/1/2018, p1-16. 16p.

Abstract: This paper presents a case of subway station construction under an existing prestressed concrete bridge with a three-span continuous beam located at the intersection of the 3rd Ring Road, Beijing. The Huayuan Subway Station of line 6, constructed cross...

Investigation of Waste Properties of Subway Construction as a Potential Component of Soil Layer.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Journal of Ecological Engineering. Sep2018, Vol. 19 Issue 5, p59-69. 11p.

Abstract: The construction of subway stations is inevitably accompanied by the formation of a large amount of waste that is extracted from the underground workings by rock. When the waste is transported, the air is polluted with the exhaust gases of the dump tru...
