Abstract

The excavation processes of tunnels has caused stresses and deformation in the surrounding soil, then they would transferred to the adjacent structured and specifically to the nearby foundations. In addition, because most of the foundations of buildings in urban areas are piles, it is necessary to study the effect of these operations on piles to evaluate the displacements and stresses acted on the piles, because they may cause a serious risk to the structures they are supporting. Various studies which included numerical or/and experimental solutions were conducted by many researchers to describe this phenomena. Numerical solutions were based on using various constitutive models (e.g. Mohr-Coulomb, elasto-plastic, elastic, displacement control model, Hardening Soil model and Soft-soil model), while the experimental approaches were based on photo-elasticity, photogrammetric technique, small scaling model, and centrifuge tests. This paper presents and discusses a review of these studies. Furthermore comparisons between them will be presented to show the most suitable approach.
