Abstract

Tunnelling work under Taipei, Taiwan, in connection with sewer construction had to be undertaken in silt soils. Ground settlement was monitored during blind shield tunnelling on the Fu-Yuan Street section of the scheme. Subsoils conditions, the results of permeability tests and a monitoring programme to determine the rate of settlement, and the instrumentation used are discussed. -D.W.Taylor
