Soil Improvement and Ground Modification Methods

Soil improvement and ground modification methods

Preference :

With very few exceptions, everything we construct in our built environment lies in or on the ground. As a consequence, the earth materials involved must be evaluated to ensure that engineering properties will adequately provide for acceptable performance of a project. There are many different properties that must be assessed based on the requirements of the project, and these will vary greatly depending on the overall (and underlying) objectives. One must be careful not to overlook other components that may affect lives and property, including natural and man-made hazards. These may involve natural, constructed, and cut slopes, potential flooding and storm surges, earthquakes, and so on. For most structures, including buildings, bridges, roadways, and engineered earth structures, there are some fundamental “rules” pertaining to the ground that must be followed in order to ensure the “success” of the structure.
