Application of Vacuum Preloading for Soft Foundation Treatment in Grain Storage
The application of vacuum preloading for soft foundation treatment in grain storage is introduced from its principle, design, construction and the inspections. Its obvious effect is proved by example. The vacuum preloading method can effectively improve the soft soil foundation’s physical and mechanical performance and increase the bearing capacity of soft soil of coastal areas. For the grain storage, oil depot especially for large reserves of oil depot project, the treatment effect is remarkable. It can be widely used in the ground treatment in the soft soil area for grain storage, oil depot construction.
