Abstract

Result of liquefiable soil treated with vibroflotation is recommended in this paper through the treatment of soil of a large power plant. The site lies in macroseismic area, where the bearing capacity of soil in layer B was low and there existed liquefaction potential. Verifications before and after treatment depicted clearly that the result of vibroflotation was excellent. Not only the liquefaction trend of soil was eliminated but also the bearing capacity was enhanced. Various testing methods were introduced and evaluation of liquefaction potential of soft saturated soil before and after treatment were analyzed and discussed in this paper.

Verification and Evaluation of the Result of Liquefiable Soil Treated With Vibroflotation

Result of liquefiable soil treated with vibroflotation is recommended in this paper through the treatment of soil of a large power plant. The site lies in macroseismic area, where the bearing capacity of soil in layer B was low and there existed liquefaction potential. Verifications before and after treatment depicted clearly that the result of vibroflotation was excellent. Not only the liquefaction trend of soil was eliminated but also the bearing capacity was enhanced. Various testing methods were introduced and evaluation of liquefaction potential of soft saturated soil before and after treatment were analyzed and discussed in this paper.
