Abstract: There is a high risk of metro foundation pit construction in the soft soil area, where foundation pit kicking occurs frequently. In this paper, by using the material point method, the failure modes and mechanism of foundation pit kicking are studied. Parametric study is performed to further analyze the effects of pit excavation depth, location of the adjacent building. As a
