Abstract:The second part of this dissertation explores the behavior of deep excavation numerical analyses, with the aid of the visualization techniques presented herein. First, a 2D plane strain excavation analysis is explored. Second, a 3D linear excavation is modeled using a variety of excavation techniques. Finally, a 3D excavation with a square footprint is modeled. Advanced visualization techniques are used to understand the complex 3D soil behavior that results. The visualization techniques present a vivid picture of the effect of excavation method selection on soil behavior and the development of a 3D arch for a square excavation.
