Paper Title:
Research on Settlement and Wavy Failure of Road on Very Soft Soil Foundation
  Abstract

Soil foundation in Tianjin Harbor is formed by hydraulic filled materials strengthened by vacuum preloading method, which is still with lower strength and larger compressibility. Large settlement and wavy failure of the roads constructed on such soil foundation are often taking place after two or three years of construction, because of the heavy vehicles running on the roads with high frequency. In order to deal with the existing problems of constructing roads on such very soft soil foundation, the following work is carried out: the displacement characteristics of roads constructed on very soft soil foundation are identified; the design methodology of constructing roads is discussed; the settlement of the constructed roads is calculated with FE methods and the mechanism of wavy failure of the roads on very soft soil foundation is analyzed.
