Settlement

Preparing building sites for construction often involves raising the current ground level. This results in settlement of the underlying weak (top) layers. These raising and settlement issues also arise when new railway tracks are laid. Lowering the groundwater level, too, can cause ground level settlement.

Calculating the anticipated settlement makes it possible to decide which method is must suitable and/or whether it is advisable to use temporary surplus heights in order to prevent residual settlement during the usage phase.
