Abstract

Geotechnical facts are presented relating to the damaging settlements of a building due to gypsum dissolution in the subsoil. Settlement records on the damaged building over a period of 15 months after first disturbances are given in correlation with the ground water pumping volumes from a well located in the neighbourhood in order to attempt a comprehensive interpretation of this case history.
