This paper presents observations of the response of long structures when exposed to tunnelling activities in London Clay. The type of structures varied from a 100 years old masonry arch tunnel to a more modern reinforced concrete frame structure. The common property shared by these structures is that they are long in comparison to the depth beneath them of the tunnels being constructed. Numerical analyses have also been carried out to back analyse the observed data using the London Clay soil parameters. The model was then extended to include a depth and a structural stiffness variable and demonstrate sensitivity to those factors.
