Paper Title:
The Numerical Simulation of Settlement Characteristics of Storage Tank on the Soft Soil Base
  Abstract

According to analyze the settlement characteristics of storage tank foundation at water-filling preloading stage and stable loading stage based on numerical simulation, and researching the settlement characteristics of storage tank foundation. The research results show that the deformation of storage tank foundation is “tray” in shape, and the maximum settlement appears at the place 0.65D away from the center of storage tank bottom, D is the radius of storage tank. Uplift appears at the place 1.3D away from the center of oil tank bottom, and the final uplift value is 10mm.The main factor which influences the consolidation speed of storage tank foundation is permeability coefficient.
