Abstract

This paper introduces the case history of foundation design for 50000 m3 oil tank in collapsible loess region. After field deep blasting test and laboratory soil test, author design deep Explosion-Squeeze-Foundation under the foundations of two oil tanks in a refinery for refining 5 million tons of crude oil per year. Diameter of E.S.F. :D1=66.43m; thickness of E.S.F.: H1=12m. It was the largest engineering practice in collapsible loess region in China in 1979 that deep foundation of 50000 cubic meter oil tanks are built by explosion squeeze technique first time.
