Effect of the excavation of soil on the reduction in its slump-type settlement under its own weight

  • I. G. Rabinovich


Basic positions of procedures and calculations of the slump-type settlement of loess soils under their own weight in the presence of excavations for deep basements are analyzed; this is associated with their use as antislump-type-settlement measures (with simultaneous use of the underground space) under soil conditions classed as type II in terms of proneness to slump-type settlement.
