Abstract

The article is dedicated to a methodology for determining the actual dimensions of the zone of long-term compressed soils under existing foundations from their previous loading. Although construction norms provide conditional criteria for this, they do not always accurately reflect the real distribution of soil deformations at the depth of the foundation. The article presents a methodology for determining the actual dimensions of the compacted soil zone under the foundations. This methodology is based on both empirical and theoretical approaches, taking into account both the strength and deformation characteristics of the soil. The application of this methodology allows obtaining more accurate results and more reliably determining the dimensions of the compacted zone, which can be useful for conducting additional research for object reconstruction or determining the permissible distance between closely located foundations. During experimental and theoretical studies, regularities in the changes of soil compaction at the depth of the foundation and its deformations over time under constant loading were identified. The developed methodology enables a more precise determination of the actual dimensions of the compacted zone, which is of great significance for ensuring the safety and reliability of building structures.
