Safety in Deep Excavation, Numerical Simulation of Room Corner Test for Polycarbonate

Kuriakose, Sanil (2016) Safety in Deep Excavation, Numerical Simulation of Room Corner Test for Polycarbonate. MTech thesis.



Excavation work is recognized as one of the most hazardous activity in the construction industry . The fatality rate in this activity is larger than this rate for general construction meanwhile the fatality rate in construction is three time more than this rate in overall industry. Current statistics on the fatal accidents which caused by excavation projects necessitates preliminary studies and precautionary actions to resolve the problem. Therefore, the investigation and revision of safety management strategies have been brought up in order to ensure the health of the project before beginning any excavation work. This study will present the important safety factors which should consider in excavation site and find out common hazards during the excavation activities. This report extends a risk assessment for excavation and providing means to offset the impacts of them on sites
