Pore pressure analysis (GL-8.50m) field (GL-8.50m) analysis (GL-5.20m) field (GL-5.20m) analysis (GL-3.50m) field (GL-3.50m) Reason: → It is thought that drainage was promoted in field when the pump stopped, while undrained boundary is set in analysis. GL-3.5m
Settlement of the center field As a whole, a similar tendency is shown. However, the value of analysis exceeds the value of field as time passes. analysis field Fig.12 Reason: Pore pressure (GL-3.50m) ; analysis < field (Fig.12) → In analysis, vacuum pressure propagation was overestimated compared with field.
