This presentations introduces the mechanisms of soil-structure interaction for piled buildings adjacent to deep excavations in urban areas, with a focus on typical soft soil conditions. The main questions that will be answered are: How can we predict the behaviour of one or more buildings when a deep excavation will be constructed? What kind of modelling and/or measurements can be used to predict this effect?

Assessing the response of buildings to excavation-induced deformations involves a combination of geotechnical and structural aspects, such as green field displacements (2D/3D, caused by deep excavations), building behaviour, soil – foundation – building interaction, monitoring techniques and modelling techniques. In this talk these topics are presented with special attention given to a case study of the construction of three deep stations and a shield tunnel in the historic city of Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
