PRACTICAL GROUND IMPROVEMENT WITH THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY

Principles and Practice of Ground Improvement presents the latest, most up-to-date information on industry technologies, with thorough exploration of both the theoretical and practical aspects of ground improvement. Detailed design procedures and examples facilitate easy implementation, and deep discussion of the applicability, advantages, and limitations of each method helps you make decisions from a more informed perspective. You'll gain insight into the principles behind commonly used ground improvement methods, along with construction details and quality control and assurance techniques that help ensure a successful solution.

Ground improvement enhances public infrastructure safety, and this book provides the understanding that stands between a successful and economical resolution and potential catastrophe.

  • Review the basics of geotechnical engineering as applied to the problems of ground improvement
  • Understand the properties of different geomaterials, and the testing and design approaches that best apply
  • Discover solutions to the challenges posed by compaction and replacement scenarios
  • Learn the important factors to consider when planning a drainage or dewatering project
  • Examine the various applications of in-situ and fill reinforcement, and the problems that can arise
  • Know the process of chemical stabilization by deep mixing or grouting and possible environmental impacts

Principles and Practice of Ground Improvement is a complete, authoritative reference to the latest in the field, with the insight of an internationally recognized expert.
