Dennis Boehm and Brian Freilich, Ph.D., PE
Tank foundation support has become increasingly challenging as more project sites are in geologic conditions that cannot provide adequate at-grade support for above-ground storage tanks. Rigid-type solutions composed of deep foundations are often chosen in these challenging conditions, increasing foundation costs and schedules. However, Ground Improvement (GI) support solutions have been used for more than 20 years to support tanks across the globe, coupling sophisticated design methods and proper field QA/QC to reduce costs, provide better schedules, and achieve the desired tank performance. This presentation will provide a background for understanding the available GI support options and a few case histories to showcase their use.
Keller North America provides a wide range of geotechnical engineering and construction services to improve soils in place and to both construct new and rehabilitate foundations. The techniques that will be discussed include Compaction & Jet Grouting, Earth Retention and Shoring, Vibro Compaction & Replacement, Micropiles, Soil Mixing for Deep Basement Excavations, and Pile Driving. Within our range of services, a Ground Modification solution is generally available for the toughest subsurface conditions.
