Abstract

Various methods of foundation treatment had been adopted in the design of different parts of the plant according to its particular needs respectively. The adopted methods include: selecting rational depth of foundation; increasing pressure on the base of foundation; replacement of soils; sand mat; pier foundation and large diameter cast-in-place piles. In addition to the foundation treatments, measures were also taken to prevent the infiltration of water and to protect the moisture of sub-soils. The super-structure were also designed to have a greater rigidity.
