English abstract:
The aim of this paper is analyzing the main factors which affect the influence zone of excavations
(excavation depth, width, distance to neighboring buildings and the load exerted by these, etc.). The importance
of these factors on estimating the displacements of the retaining structure is briefly described based on finite
element analysis results.An extended database on retaining walls and excavation-induced ground displacements
is statistically analyzed for conceiving the geotechnical model of the excavation. The latter is further analyzed
through varying the above mentioned parameters. The results are validated by comparing them to the data
recorded in the extended database and an index for evaluating the excavation influence is proposed. Related
to the neighboring building´s number of storeys, this index correlates the maximum lateral deflection of the
retaining wall with the maximum settlement behind it.
