Paper Title:
Field Test on the New Method of Vacuum Dewatering with Lower-energy Dynamic Consolidation for Silty Soil Ground
  Abstract

The dynamic consolidation method has been used widely in various engineering domain. With this method, the velocity of reconsolidation settlement was enhanced, the consolidation result was good, and the cost was lower than other methods. However, in the flooded area of Yellow River, the groundwater level is higher, and the shallow saturated silty soil liquefaction will be happened with this single method of dynamic consolidation. It goes against the roadbed stability. According to engineering practice, the vacuum dewatering with lower energy dynamic consolidation method was proposed in this paper. In order to monitor the effect of this consolidation method, the water-level observation hole, pore water pressure gauge, standard guide pile, level gauge have been set up. They could be used to get the groundwater level, the excess pore water pressure, horizontal displacement and land subsidence, respectively. These monitors would last the whole period of the consolidation experiment. Field test results shows that the excess pore water pressure was reduced by 80%-90% during one to three days.
