Numerical Simulation of Land Subsidence Caused by High-Rise Building, Applied in Tanggu, China
Ground subsidence is aggravated and becomes a prominent phenomenon recently in Tanggu, China. The subsidence reached its most critic state because of intensive water over-extraction in 1980s. Thereafter, over-draft withdraw of groundwater has been strictly controlled. Consequently, the rate of settlement decreased in the subsequent period. However, in recent year, ground subsidence becomes a prominent hazard again in some high-rise building areas .GPS-based monitoring data indicated new cone of depression has been formed. After detail investigation and analysis, it was thought that the appearance of the new subsidence center is the direct consequence of the construction of high-rise building. In this study, based on acquired monitoring data of subsidence, a special software package of Adina computer programs was applied in this study and analysis of the mechanism of subsidence induced by buildings. The results indicate that this method is useful to manage the land subsidence problem to high-rise building group.
