Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Foundation Engineering: Current Principles and Practices


Performance behaviour of three deep braced excavations in a similar soil profile, in the Chicago area is described. At each site, different bracing systems were utilized. Methods used for lateral pressure analysis are given. Measured strut loads are compared with design loads. Lateral movements observed at the various stages of construction are analyzed and compared with predicted movements.
