Abstract

Prasat Suor Prat, an independent masonry tower, was dismantled before restoration work by JSA (Japanese Government Team for Safeguarding Angkor) to study possible mechanism that had caused inclination of the towers and horizontal spreading of stair stones. Dismantling upper structures as well as foundation mound were performed. Archaeological trench had revealed the mechanism of deformation of the structure as well as foundation. To avoid the possible defects, strengthening soil ground was selected rather than adapting the same methodology of only dense compaction of sand as done in ancient Angkor.
