Finite-Difference Method Appliance to the Computation of Ground Additional Stress and Settlement of Storage Tank
This paper adopts the Finite-difference method to research the distribution of ground additional stress and distortion in differently isotropic and non-isotropic foundation conditions, and uses the Finite-difference method to compare with the Finite-element method and the three-dimensional settlement method used by the code. Through comparative analysis, the reliability and superiority of Finite-difference method used for calculating ground additional stress and settlement are justified.
