Influence Analysis of Pit Foundation Precipitation to Adjoining Raft Foundation
Pit foundation excavation leads both settlement and uneven settlement in the building foundation. It has settlement cracks in masonry and concrete structure; these damages lie on the basis of the instability in neighboring buildings. In this paper, by the use of FLAC3D, it establish three-dimensional numerical analysis mode of interaction between foundation pit excavation and raft foundation, the change patterns of the soil deformation, pore water pressure and the uneven settlements of raft foundation are analyzed. The results indicate that the maximum value of the raft foundation settlement appears on the maximum pit free surface on the foundation pit, and the lesser value of the raft foundation settlement is away from the foundation pit, these indicate that the laws of the uneven settlement.
