Abstract

Consolidation settlement was a major topic discussed by the civil engineers and geologists particularly when dealing with structure design involving foundations. The prediction of long-term settlements can be determined by the soil exploration. In this study, the prediction of settlement for petrol chemical tank reservoir project have been selected and discussed as a case study. Base on thin-wall tube sampler, soil samples from the project were investigated in the laboratory by consolidation test which was done by using the oedometer apparatus. Finally, the consolidation time and settlement can be predicted from the oedometer results which indicate the highest settlement of the project was 0.6m within 1.2 months.
