conference paper description
A soil improvement program revealed new dimensions of rate of pore pressure dissipation, settlement, creep, and lateral deformation. The program saved a considerable foundation construction cost. A new parameter, pore pressure response ratio (R) is introduced. The case history presents observed results of tank-foundation-soil interaction.
