Abstract
Heavy loads on soft s oil layers a r e becoming a common problem as good available sites are used up . Much of the industrial land around Tokyo has been reclaimed by pumping fill hydraulically over soft clay layers which underly Tokyo Bay. The weigh t o f the fill and deep pumping of water in the area are causing area-wide compression of the clay layers. This settlement , combined with settlement under the weight of tanks on the reclaimed sites, is enough to cause serious problems.
