Analysis of the Influences of Soil Parameters on the Settlement of Storage Tank Foundation
The settlement characteristics of storage tank foundation at water-filling preloading stage and stable loading stage was analyzed based on numerical simulation. And the influences of foundation soil parameters on the settlement of storage tank foundation were studied. The research results show that 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. The consolidation settlement is determined by compression modulus and load.
