    Book details


The ability to predict the potential damage to buildings accurately and to have confidence in the chosen protective measures is of increasing importance for the viability of urban tunnelling. The Jubilee Line Extension Project (JLEP) presented a unique opportunity to capture reliable field measurements of the effects of tunnelling on a wide range of buildings. Building response to tunnelling: Case studies from the Jubilee Line Extension, London is the result of this work. Volume 1 describes the relevant part of the JLEP, the methods of settlement prediction and building damage assessment used on the project, and the objectives of the research. Further chapters provide accounts of the geology and historical development of more of the case study buildings (between Green Park and Canada Water stations of the JLE route). Full transcriptions are included of the before-the-event and independent best practice predictions of surface and at-depth ground movements at two greenfield sites and the settlement of four buildings, which were made specially for the research. The concluding chapter of Volume 1, written by Professor John Burland, presents the overall findings of the research to date. Volume 2 presents, in their geographical sequence, the twenty-seven case studies: from Green Park in the west to London Bridge, and then eastward to Canada Water station. These case studies include two instrumented greenfield sites and several examples of prestigious buildings in London's west end that were protected by compensation grouting. The case studies present descriptions of the buildings, the works that affected them and measurements made to record their response. This valuable and informative two volume book has been written by the experts who participated in the research and is generously illustrated with numerous line drawings, graphs, pictures and maps. Building response to tunnelling: Case studies from the jubilee Line Extension, London will be essential reading to tunnelling and geotechnical engineers and all those who have an interest in this successful and interesting underground project. NOTE:This is a 2 volume set.
