The 3,200 square foot Henry J. Schnabel Laboratory has been part of extensive research at the University of Illinois during the last decade on the behavior and performance of excavations. Some studies included,  Collection of field observations,  testing of excavation walls adjacent to building walls, Numerical analysis and workshops to develop guidelines for practive.
