Analysis on Excess Pore Water Pressure Caused by Prestressed Concrete Pipes Construction in Saturated Clay Ground
Prestressed concrete pipes construction by hammer cause high excess pore water pressure in deep soft soils because Soil disturbance by violent and poor permeability of soft soil. Taking the typical soft ground in passenger special line from Hang Zhou to Ning Bo as the engineering example, the in-situ measuring of the excess pore water pressure in saturated clay ground during the construction of the piles was carried out, and the comparison analysis with the solutions from Vesic theory was also done. The changing rules of excess pore water pressure and its influence range during the sinking of the piles were studied, which would provide an important basis for the design and construction of the similar projects.
