Abstract

Densification of loose sandy soil by Vibroflotation was designed and constructed to mitigate the risk of seismically-induced liquefaction for the proposed 15,000 square meter terminal building. The analyses of the geotechnical data and the design of the densification based upon specified parameters is reported. Field installation methods and post-densification results are discussed.
