|Abstract:||Excavation of a tunnel induces small movements at the surface of the ground above. Those movements are often estimated by empirical methods. This paper presents a simple derivation of formulas for elastic ground, based on the reciprocal theorem. It confirms that the effect of removal of the weight of the soil in the tunnel is not negligible.|
