7 To place crack control hole for monitoring End of improved area30cmSand layer30cm2mImproved area6m15cm in diameter6m図はクラック制御孔についての概要図です。Crack control hole is shown.改良域端部から2m程度離れた位置に、直径15cm、高さ6mの孔を30cm間隔で形成することにより、クラックの発生する場所を制御します。The hole is 15cm in diameter and 6m in height, and, it is formed at intervals of 30cm in the position left about 2m from the end of improved area to monitor the crack.2m15cm in diameter
8 Relief well To prevent seepage from peripheral ground Supply of the waterTo prevent seepage from peripheral groundWater level observation well W-2End of improved area30cmImproved area6mSand layer次にリチャージウェルについて説明したいと思います。Relief well is shown.中間砂層からの水の流入が周辺地盤への影響の原因として考えられます。The seepage from peripheral ground is thought as the cause of the influence on peripheral ground.そこで、先程のクラック制御孔に水を供給することで周辺地盤からの水の流入を阻止し、周辺地盤への影響を減少させます。So relief well prevents the seepage by supplying the water into crack control hole, and the influence on peripheral ground decreases.また、水位観測井戸W-2を設置し、地下水位状況を計測しました。Moreover, water level observation well W-2 was installed, and the situation of groundwater level was measured.2m15cm in diameter
9 Settlement Settlement (cm) Time (day) Vacuum pump operating all the day①②-5.1mS-1-11.3mS-2-13.0mS-3S-3(GL-13.0m)layer②Settlement (cm)layer①ground surface次に層別沈下計より計測された沈下量から算出した区間圧縮量の経時変化を示します。The variation of settlement with time is shown.沈下計S-3には全く沈下が見られないのでS-3以深には真空圧密の影響はないと考えられます。Vacuum consolidation didn’t take its effect under the depth of S-3 because no settlement was observed at settlement gauge S-3.①層と②層を比較してみると、両層とも同等の沈下が生じており、深層にまで圧密促進効果が促進されていると言える。As compared layer① and layer②, it is believed that the consolidation promoting effect of vacuum consolidation is promoted to deep soil because both layer① and layer② sink similarly.Time (day)Installation depth of differential settlement gauge
10 Groundwater level Water pressure (kPa) Measuring day (date) W-1(Inside of improved area GL-13.0m)The water is supplied into relief wellVacuum pump operating all the day次に地下水位の経時変化を示します。The variation of groundwater level with time is shown.W-1には真空ポンプの稼動の有無に関わらず明確な反応は見られないので、深度13m以深には真空圧密の影響はないと言えます。Vacuum consolidation is thought no effect under the depth of 13m because the water pressure at W-1 has no response to the operation of vacuum pump.W-2には真空圧による地下水位の変化が見られます。The intense variation of groundwater level was observed at W-2.しかし、リチャージウェルを設置してからはその効果が明確に現われています。However, relief well took its effect after the water was supplied into it.W-2(Outside of improved area GL-6.0m)
11 Summary of field investigation Countermeasure for peripheral groundDeformation on peripheral ground is reducedInstallation of relief well as countermeasure for peripheral groundInstallation of relief well as countermeasure for peripheral groundInfluence range of vacuum consolidationThere was no reaction both differential settlement gauge S-3 and water level observation well W-1There is no effect of vacuum consolidation under improved depthThere was no reaction both differential settlement gauge S-3 and water level observation well W-1試験施工のまとめです。周辺地盤沈下対策としてリチャージウェルを設置することにより、周辺地盤の変状の軽減を図ることが出来ました。As the summary of field investigation, the deformation on peripheral ground could be reduced by installing relief well as countermeasure for peripheral ground.また層別沈下計、水位観測井戸共に反応が無かったことから、改良深度以深の層には影響しないという知見が得られました。Moreover, it is thought that there is no effect of vacuum consolidation under improved depth because there was no reaction both differential settlement gauge S-3 and water level observation well W-1
