Abstract

The sixteen papers comprising the general theme "Analysis and Numerical Modeling of Deep Excavations" of the 6th International Symposium on Geotechnical Aspects of Underground Construction in Soft Ground are summarized herein. General characteristics of all papers are presented as are brief summaries of each paper. Most papers included presentation of results of finite element simulations and attendant comparisons with various aspects of observed field performance. Some of the pitfalls for making comparisons between numerical results and field observations of deep excavation performance are discussed briefly. In particular, the effects of modeling construction details and selection of appropriate constitutive models are presented. Recommendations are tendered regarding the essential information that should be conveyed in papers that present results of numerical calculations.
