Rapid urbanisation has led to the ever-increasing excavation of surface and sub-surface spaces for construction. Successful construction of surface and sub-surface facilities depends on an awareness of and systematic approach to geological challenges. Analysis and Design of Soil and Rock Excavation focuses on geotechnical site investigation, design philosophy, and planning for safe and stable structures. The title includes real-world case studies to help the reader overcome specific geotechnical challenges. Six chapters cover a general introduction to excavated structures, detail the numerical study of deep excavation, consider adjacent excavation and interference, describe earth pressure on retaining walls, and provide a case study of sub-surface excavation in rock. The title addresses detailed design, and construction, giving attention to issues such as systematic investigation and contract consideration. This book is a one-stop solution for implementing surface and sub-surface structures associated with deep excavation.



  • Gives key theoretical and practical guidance for geotechnical site investigation, design and construction of excavated facilities
  • Takes a systematic approach to geological challenges, including real-world examples and case studies
  • Includes all the information needed to implement surface and sub-surface structures associated with deep excavation
  • Provides data, information and guidance based on many years of practical experience in excavation
