Analysis of Tall Buildings Settlement Observation Process and Data Processing and Forecast

Yan Lv, Yi Zhu


It is necessary to observe the deformation of buildings while they are constructed and utilized. Based on the practical requirements and combined with a real property, the thesis primarily discussed the processing researched for surveying of building settlement. Test and analysis of stability of the datum points. On the basis of the settlement difference calculated at intervals and the cumulative settlements, the curved p-t-s (pressure, time, settlement) diagram is plotted. For the buildings it is better with whole rigidity. By the analysis of settlement data, the mathematical model for the settlement, time and pressure is developed; some valuable results are obtained, which provide certain experiences for the practical projects.
