Abstract

This paper includes analysis of ground surface settlement and diaphragm wall displacement by using finite element analysis as part of underground car park design underneath Russel Square in central London, United Kingdom. Short-term (undrained), consolidation (time-dependent), and long-term (drained) analyses were performed by adopting Mohr-Coulomb soil model to ensure stability of diaphragm wall and predict the behavior of soil and wall. It was identified that the diaphragm wall is stable and both ground surface settlement and lateral wall displacement are within acceptable limits, thereby ensuring ultimate and serviceability limit states.
