Taking the ground settlement while pipe-jacking construction in soft soil as the engineering background, the effect of pipe jacking were studied by numerical simulation. It focused on the factors that mainly influenced surface settlement of ground including in-situ stress release rate (or ground loss ratio), chamber pressure, elastic modulus of soil, buried depth and diameter of pipe. That would provide theoretical basis for taking measures to reduce surface subsidence while jacking. The main conclusions were as follows: (1) The in-situ stress release rate and pipe diameter were proportional to the surface subsidence. (2) Chamber pressure, elastic modulus and buried depth were inverse proportional to the surface subsidence. (3) From the point of view of the influence on surface settlement, the sensitivity of pipe diameter and elastic modulus of soil was the greatest, followed by burial depth and chamber pressure, and the stress release rate was the smallest.
