Abstract

This paper presents a case history of ground treatment for a large power station - Zhang Ze Power Station, which locates in the south-east region in Shanxi, P. R. China. In the second phase of this project, a comprehensive treatment program including pile foundation, dynamic consolidation, and natural foundation has been used successfully according to significance of structure, conditions of loading, characters of technology, and so on. After 6 years working, the Station operates normally, and settlements of structures distribute well, proving the program is reasonable, workable, and economic. It is suggested that the choice of foundation treatment in a large project must consider comprehensively various factors, such as sorts of structure, types of loading, and geology in site, cost of construction, environment of site, etc.
