Example text

How deep could an excavation proceed before there is a danger that the hydrostatic uplift pressure would lift the remaining soil? Referring to Fig. 9 m At this depth there is incipient uplift (termed a blow in) and site safety is in jeopardy. , which produce weakened points where water could more readily enter the excavation. It is evident that very costly remedial measures might be necessary if the site exploration program had not discovered this confined aquifer. Permeability Flow of soil water for nonturbulent conditions has been expressed by Darcy as v = ki where (2-26) i = hydraulic gradient h/L, as previously defined k = coefficient of permeability (or hydraulic conductivity) as proposed by Darcy, length/time Table 2-3 lists typical order-of-magnitude (exponent of 10) values for various soils.

2-8 IN SITU STRESSES AND K0 CONDITIONS Any new foundation load—either an increase (+) from a foundation or a decrease ( - ) from an excavation—imposes new stresses on the existing state of "locked in" stresses in the foundation soil mass. The mass response is heavily dependent on the previous stress history, so one of the most important considerations in foundation engineering is to ascertain this stress imprint. The term imprint is used since any previously applied stresses that are larger than those currently existing have been locked into the soil structure and will affect subsequent stress-response behavior until a new set of larger stresses are applied to produce a new imprint.

This excess pore pressure would show a rise of water level in a piezometer tube just as if we had poured water into it in the case just analyzed. Hydraulic Gradient When a piezometer tube is inserted into the soil and the water level rises to the GWT outside the tube we have a static case, and any flow is in the direction of the hydraulic grade line of the GWT. When we pour water into the tube, we produce an excess pore pressure with a higher energy level inside than outside the tube and, according to the Bernoulli principle, flow will start from the high to the lower energy level (the GWT).
