English abstract:
Designing deep excavations in densely built areas implies complex aspects when estimating
the effects induced on the existing built environment. Numerical methods used nowadays can account for both
strength and deformability parameters of soils, helping the engineer in assessing not only difficult geometries
and the sequence of construction stages, but also complex soil behavior through advanced constitutive models.
Thus, both the retaining wall deformations and excavation-induced ground movements can accurately be
predicted. The paper focuses on presenting the application of the above stated issues on a practical case study
by using the finite element method. In principle, this is related to the assimilation of appropriate calculation
technique and constitutive soil models together with their associated geotechnical parameters. The case study is
represented by a deep excavation constructed inVienna, for which the results are validated by comparison to the
measurements of real soil behavior.
