abstract

  • Consolidation time in the centrifugal model testing is 1/n2 of the prototype, thus secular settlement of soft ground can be simulated within a short time. So in order to predict settlement of soft ground and decide if disposal of soft ground is feasible, grain sand is used simulating gravel pile and making soft ground model n times gravity in the centrifugal machine, by this method soft ground can be consolidated very quickly. The relation of settlement during construction and after construction can be well predicted and furthermore, disposal of soft ground is approved to be feasible.
