Abstract

A case study of the performance and failure of an aragonite and salt storage pad covering an area of approximately 250 ft. (76 m) square built on marginal subsurface conditions is reported. A detailed analysis of the failure illustrates the importance of thorough exploration of subsurface conditions and field instrumentation to monitor the performance of such storage pads during and after the loading period.

Failure of a Salt Aragonite Storage Pad

A case study of the performance and failure of an aragonite and salt storage pad covering an area of approximately 250 ft. (76 m) square built on marginal subsurface conditions is reported. A detailed analysis of the failure illustrates the importance of thorough exploration of subsurface conditions and field instrumentation to monitor the performance of such storage pads during and after the loading period.
