Abstract

A new type of foundation, which could reduce the differential settlement of structures, was proposed. One of the features of the new foundation was that the centre of balance was shifted from the centre of the foundation to the side at which soft soil strata lie thinner. Another point of the proposed foundation was the short end walls attached to the edges of foundation. A series of three-dimensional numerical analyses had been conducted to study about the behaviour of the new foundation. The results of the analyses revealed that the proposed foundation could reduce the differential settlement of structures.
