Sample text

Viewed over all the columns, this may appear as if there is a random pulsing of settlement behavior. This explanation may appear to disagree with our earlier observation that shimming apparently did not change the overall rates of settlement. That observation was drawn from looking at long-term trends (12 months and more), while the behavior postulated here is seen at a monthly frequency. The short-term pulsing behavior may be persistently superimposed on the long-term rate trend and may only be obvious when data are collected frequently.

There is clearly differential settlement among the columns, even within a particular wing. However, following the first year after installation, differential settlement does not seem to be increasing but remains fairly uniform. An odd feature we identified is the irregular nature of settlement during the South Pole summer (mid-November to mid-February), when measurements are taken at least monthly. Very few of the column’s data depict a smooth settlement pattern over these four or five closely spaced measurements.

A number of columns still do not carry their full intended dead load, and currently only Wings A1, A2, and A3 have the majority of their live loading. Because of the excess differential settlement, in December 2002, seven columns were re-leveled (A1-3, A1-4, A2-2, A2-4, A2-6, A3-3, and A3-4). Shims were added beneath the grade beams (which rigidly connect the columns in a grid pattern) in these locations to bring into better harmony the level of these particular wings. The structural criteria established in the basis-of-design of the Elevated Station limits the differential settlement between “adjacent support points” to 50 mm (2 in) (Berry and Braun 1999).
