"Underground Construction and Ground Movement" represents the recent advances in research and practical applications in engineering issues in karst and ground subsidence, tunneling and underground construction, and deep excavation. This Geotechnical Special Publication contains 52 technical papers that were presented at the GeoShanghai Conference held in Shanghai, China from June 6-8, 2006. The book begins with two keynote papers by Professor Linda Yang and Professor Jian Zhao, which summarize recent advances in some key problems on stability analysis of underground rock structures and recent studies of rock dynamics for underground development, respectively. The section on engineering issues in karst and ground subsidence addresses investigation, construction and design issues in karst terrain and ground subsidence due to withdrawal of fluids. The tunneling and underground construction section covers topics such as box culverts, shield tunnels and interactions between tunnels and other underground and surface structures. The deep excavation section presents theoretical and case studies on stability and deformations associated with deep excavation.
