This work presents a sensitivity analysis of the coupled hydro-mechanical response for shafts excavated by the sequential method, varying some geotechnical parameters. The goal of this paper is to get insights into the influence of the different geotechnical parameters on the predicted response of the model, in order to provide some design rules for realizing sequential excavations in unsaturated soils. The differences obtained between the pure mechanical and the different hydro-mechanical analy...
