Resum
A large water treatment plant is to be built on soft deltaic deposits. Precompression has been selected as the method for achieving the required ground improvement. An instrumented preload test has been carried out to obtain reliable information on precompression performance. Distributions of displacements throughout the foundation depth, obtained using sliding micrometer extensometers, have proved extremely useful for identifying the mechanisms of behaviour controlling ground deformation. The m...
