Fast urban growth and an ever-increasing frequency of extreme weather-related events demand a better understanding of land subsidence and the potential measures to control it. This paper presents an experimental investigation on the deformation behavior of sand undergoing cyclic withdrawal and recharging of groundwater. A sand-box model with dimensions 1000 mm × 600 mm × 892 mm was used to investigate soil deformation following lowering and rising of the water table. The sand used was Pingtan sand (Fujian, China) a quartzitic formation composed of elongated to slightly spherical grains. Three sand samples with different initial densities, i.e. loose, medium dens...
