The consolidation effect of vacuum combined with fill surcharge preloading always influenced by many factors including vacuum pressure, vertical load pressure and vertical drainage depth. As the way to improve the reliability of the method, based on the soil consolidation mechanisms and actual data getting from the laboratory test and in-situ test, the main indexes of the method were studied in this paper. The test results show that the ratio of the vacuum pressure and vertical load pressure can cause difference soil settlement-deformation, if the ratio close to 1 the consolidation effect of the foundation can be gradually advanced. The soil outside the embankment always has displacement to reinforcement region in the upper depth of the foundation soil when the vacuum pressure equals to the vertical load pressure.
