Ground deformation and additional stress on the segments of the firstly constructed tunnel may change significantly due to the construction of another tunnel, which is closely spaced with the existing one. A poor geotechnical condition possibly leads to the interaction between such closely spaced tunnels even making it harder to build such tunnels. A practical project located in Guangzhou City, China, consists of such two parallel tunnels with the smallest distance of 2.6 m, which sat on an upper-soft and lower-hard stratum. A 3D finite element model has been proposed to numerically investigate the behavior of these two parallel tunnels. The numerical results predicted by the FE model are in close agreement with that obtained from the field monitoring system, indicating the accuracy of the proposed FE model. The FE model was then used to further analyze the effect of reinforcing piles in eliminating the detrimental effect on both ground deformation and additional stress of the segments of the existing tunnel as a result of the construction of the new parallel tunnel. The research results obtained from the present paper can provide technical support and guidance for urban subway construction.
