Tunnels constructed in soft soils give rise to displacements in existing structures surrounding the tunnel. Results are presented for a study conducted to estimate ground movements induced by protracted construction of Line 7 on the Tehran Metro, and compare them with data acquired with use of empirical finite-difference methods on a 3D model.
