Abstract

A new version of the rectification technique tor the leaning structure and foundation developed by Wuhan Foundation Engineering Center was used to restore the tilted columns to their original position. The main idea of this new method is to apply adjusting loads on the foundation through anchors or short piles. According to the tilting conditions the anchors or piles can be installed at one side or at both sides of the tilting foundations. The loads can be applied in successive increments until the final desired positions were reached. By using this technique a tilted warehouse was completely restored to its working condition and given below as a typical example of case history.
