MAY BE THE EIGHT WONDER OF THE WORLD

 
Anybody who bought a condo here sure has a problem.  
  YES, IT'S A 13 STORY BUILDING IN CHINA LYING ON THE GROUND








WHY ?


(1)  An underground garage was being dug on the south side, to a depth of 4.6 meters. 
(2)  The excavated dirt was being piled up on the north side, to a height of 10 meters. 

 (3)  The building experienced uneven lateral pressure from south and north. 

 
(4)  This resulted in a lateral pressure of 3,000 tonnes, which was greater than what the pilings could     tolerate.  Thus the building toppled over in the southerly direction.




  ( 1 )    *First, the apartment building was constructed.*



 ( 2 )
Then the plan called  for an underground garage to be dug out. 
       The  excavated soil was piled up on the other side of the  building.




 ( 3 ) HEAVY RAINS RESULTED  IN WATER  SEEPING INTO THE GROUND .





 ( 4 ) THE BUILDING BEGAN TO TILT .
        THEN IT BEGAN TO SHIFT & THE HOLLOW CONCRETE PILING WERE SNAPPED
         DUE TO THE UNEVEN LITERAL PRESSURES




 ( 5 ) AND THUS WAS BORN THE EIGHT WONDER OF THE WORLD ,















  WE SHOULD TAKE A LESSON FROM THIS ,
