|Title:||Pioneering Real-time Computational Models for Building Damage Prediction During Adjacent Tunnel Excavation||Authors:||Clarke, Julie; Laefer, Debra F.||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/7707||Date:||19-Apr-2013||Online since:||2016-06-27T14:10:22Z||Abstract:||Numerical modelling is commonly employed prior to tunnel excavation to estimate surface settlements and to predict the response of adjacent structures. Unfortunately, geotechnical and building parameters are difficult to determine for the large geographical extent of a tunnelling project. As such, parametric values for modelling purposes are frequently assumed and are rarely revised to provide updated predictions as field data becomes available. Given advances in 'real time' data availability from subsurface- and surface-based monitoring systems, the question arises of how to better fully exploit this data for improved adjacent building protection. To achieve this, integration of numerical models into the monitoring process to provide updated 'real time' building response predictions is explored. This paper extends existing frameworks which utilize geotechnical field data to provide 'real time' predictions to also include building considerations.||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Copyright (published version):||2013 the Authors||Keywords:||Surface settlements; Building damage; Monitoring; Real-time data||Other versions:||http://www.eurotun2013.rub.de/||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed||Conference Details:||3rd EURO: TUN 2013 Computational Methods in Tunnelling and Subsurface Engineering, Bochum, Germany, 17 - 19 April 2013|
