Can someone please explain the cause of failure. From the photos it looks like land movement?But this could be mis-leading The bridge was collapsed due to construction of a new bridge pillars at the same place. it has been took place due to human error. i think there is no any land movement etc. faraz passu The similar incident was happened in China last year, when a new tower collapsed based on excavation for adjacent building deep foundation and deposited the excavated soil on other side of newly constructed tower, which resulted in development of anti-clock wise coupling and failure occurred in shear in piles. The similar case has happened here,,,,they made excavation nearby the existing foundation , which un-balanced the stress distribution the foundation and forced the lateral thrust to develop coupling causing the collapse of the existing foundation Comments are closed.
