Analysis of the Effect of Stopping Dewatering on Group Piles Foundation
After the construction of building foundation with high groundwater table was finished, stopping dewatering of pit could create some effect on the force of foundation. In this paper, equivalent temperature-changed method was brought forward to simulate the influence of stopping dewatering which could conveniently use current structural analysis program to simulate the change of pore water pressure in soil. And based on ANSYS program, this method was applied in the project of Telecom Network Management Center in Shaanxi Province. Numerical results indicate that the effect of stopping dewatering on pile-raft system is significant, and some ‘abnormal phenomenon’ in In-Situ Testing is reasonably explained.
