CONSTRUCTION OF SAND CUSHIONS FOR FOUNDATIONS /IN RUSSIAN/

A NEW METHOD IS DESCRIBED OF CONSTRUCTING SAND CUSHIONS FOR FOUNDATIONS. THIS METHOD ELIMINATES THE WETTING AND COMPACTION STAGES, THUS RESULTING IN SAVINGS IN LABOR AND EQUIPMENT. IT CONSISTS OF BRINGING SAND AND LEVELLING IT WITH A BULLDOZER LAYER BY LAYER. THE BULK DENSITY NEEDED IS OBTAINED BY SELF-COMPACTION OF THE SAND AND BY THE PRESSURE EXERTED BY THE BULLDOZER DURING SINGLE PASSES OVER EACH LAYER. AN EXAMPLE IS GIVEN OF THE CONSTRUCTION OF A SAND CUSHION, 2.2 M THICK, UNDER THE FOUNDATIONS OF A BUILDING IN KIEV. /LCPC/RRL/
