Abstract: Tunnel excavation would cause ground deformation that may induce additional load and deflection on adjacent pile foundations. However, pile behaviour due to tunneling-induced soil movement is not well understood and few case studies exist in literature at present. A centrifuge model study is therefore carried out to obtain a better understanding of the above problem. A technique proposed by Sharma et al. (2001) for the simulation of tunnel excavation in centrifuge flight has been adopted and modified in this research program. Three test series are performed in the present study to evaluate the effects of distance of pile from tunnel, pile length and ground loss on pile responses due to tunnel excavation.
