Written by an author with more than 25 years of field and academic experience, Soil Improvement and Ground Modification Methods explains ground improvement technologies for converting marginal soil into soil that will support all types of structures. Soil improvement is the alteration of any property of a soil to improve its engineering performance. Some sort of soil improvement must happen on every construction site. This combined with rapid urbanization and the industrial growth presents a huge dilemma to providing a solid structure at a competitive price.

  • Structural elements for stabilization of new or existing construction industrial waste/by-products, commercially available soil
  • Innovative techniques for drainage, filtration, dewatering, stabilization of waste, and contaminant control and removal
