Abstract

A design of soil improvement for building a petroleum storage tank with a capacity of 50000 M3, and its construction are presented in this paper. Mono-axis deep mixing technique was applied for this project. Laboratory and in-situ test on cemented soil both for static and dynamic properties were conducted, based on which analysis of strength for static and seismic loading can be used for the practice of the project.

Improvement of Soft Clay for 50000 M3 Oil Storage Tank

St. Louis, Missouri

A design of soil improvement for building a petroleum storage tank with a capacity of 50000 M3, and its construction are presented in this paper. Mono-axis deep mixing technique was applied for this project. Laboratory and in-situ test on cemented soil both for static and dynamic properties were conducted, based on which analysis of strength for static and seismic loading can be used for the practice of the project.
