Abstract

This report covers 33 papers submitted to the session Numerical Analysis of Tunnels and Deep Excavations. The majority of papers (26) addresses aspects related to tunnelling, both NATM and bored tunnels. As compared to previous conferences analysis of interaction between tunnel construction and surrounding structures such as buildings and pile foundations seems to have become more important. Only about 30% of the papers include actual field data but some additional papers cover practical aspects of tunnel construction. In this report the key points of each contribution are summarized. Finally some concluding remarks on the role of numerical modelling in underground construction in soft ground are added from a personal point of view.
