Soft Clay Engineering And Ground Improvement PDF


This book covers the design and implementation of ground improvement techniques as applicable to soft clays in the eyes of experienced geotechnical personnel, from academics to practitioners.

Soft soils and ground improvement have become major challenges to geotechnical engineers during the last three decades. Planners, architects, consultants, and contractors are now aware what soft soil is and the risks associated with development in areas where soft soil is encountered. They know that ‘good’ land is limited and, therefore, marginal lands need to be improved.
