Underground tank method

FIELD: construction.

SUBSTANCE: method consists in digging a pit for the tank, installing the foundation, installing the tank in the pit and attaching it to the foundation, testing the mounted tank, placing it on the bottom of the pit bottom around the tank of the prefabricated movable formwork equipped with elements for capturing and moving the formwork in the upper part and filling the space between the tank and the pit. The formwork is prefabricated, it is made of a set of side and end elements, and the filling is carried out by layer filling of the space between the formwork and the tank - with sand, and between the formwork and the pit - with soil, followed by ramming of each layer. Then, the formwork is refilled with sand and the pit is refilled with soil after the formwork is moved upwards, along the tank until the pit is fully filled and the formwork is removed.

EFFECT: increasing the economical efficiency of the tank installation due to the use of prefabricated formwork, reducing labour intensity, reducing the sand consumption.

SUBSTANCE: method of arrangement of the low-temperature product tank foundation in weak permafrost soil supported by the pile field cooled by additional freezing of the permafrost soil massif differs in that an additional freezing of the permafrost soil massif with piles is performed by depth thermoelements using the method of forced adjustable supply of coolant with pre-set temperature into them from the external source of its cooling through girdled distributive lines, and for freezing of the soil base under the slab during storage of the product its own negative temperature is used. After certain time interval when the range of frost penetration in the soil base from the low-temperature product in the tank achieves the design temperatures, the additional forced freezing by the deep thermoelements is stopped partially or completely.

EFFECT: improvement of reliability of the foundation slab, increase of profitability of works at operation of foundation slabs in ductile and frozen and salted permafrost soil.

SUBSTANCE: method to install underground vertical cylindrical reservoirs consisting in digging a pit for a reservoir, installation of a foundation, installation of the reservoir into the foundation and its fixation to the foundation, testing of the mounted reservoir and filling of the space between the reservoir and the pit. Travelling forms are installed on the bottom of the pit on top of the reservoir, and the forms are made in the form of a cylinder without a base with a diameter defined in accordance with the expression d=d + 0.4m, where d - diameter of forms, d - reservoir diameter, m, with elements for gripping and moving of the forms in the upper part. Filling is carried out by layerwise filling of the space between the forms and the reservoir with sand, and between the forms and the pit - with soil with subsequent ramming of each layer. Then repeated filling of the forms is carried out with sand, and the pit is filled with soil, after moving of the forms upwards along the reservoir until full filling of the pit and withdrawal of the forms.

EFFECT: higher cost-effectiveness of installation of underground vertical cylindrical reservoirs, reduced material intensity and labour intensiveness of construction.
