Land Subsidence Induced by the Engineering-Environmental Effect in Shanghai, China
Urban land subsidence is influenced by many factors, including the building loads, the changing of groundwater level, the construction of underground structures, etc. The study results indicate that the building itself experiences the maximum subsidence and there exists remarkable superimposition effect among the high-rise buildings. However, the land subsidence decreases dramatically with the distance increasing. The range of land subsidence caused by building loads is within 300 m through the in-site monitoring data.
