CONFERENCE ON SOIL MECHANICS. SOIL HYDRAULICS. SETTLEMENT CAUSED BY THE LOWERING OF THE WATER-TABLE /IN FRENCH/

THE LOWERING OF THE WATER-TABLE BY PUMPING CAN RESULT IN SETTLEMENT IN THE PUMPING AREA AND DAMAGE TO STRUCTURES BUILT IN THAT AREA. A STUDY IS PRESENTED OF SETTLEMENT CAUSED BY AN INCREASE IN EFFECTIVE STRESSES DUE TO AN EVEN LOWERING OF THE WATER-TABLE. STUDY RESULTS SHOW THAT IT LEADS TO A RISK OF DAMAGE TO LIGHTWEIGHT LARGE-AREA STRUCTURES SUPPORTED BY NARROW FOOTINGS ON A NORMALLY CONSOLIDATED OR SLIGHTLY OVERCONSOLIDATED SOIL. METHODS OF PREDICTING SETTLEMENT CAUSED BY THE LOWERING OF THE WATER-TABLE ARE EXAMINED, AND ONE EXAMPLE GIVEN. /LCPC/RRL/
