Abstract

In the present paper, attention is chiefly focused on ground treatment approach which merits designers’ preference in most situations, not because of greater latitude in terms of choice but also because of better assurance of performance. Some innovative foundation techniques have been introduced. The performance of these techniques have been evaluated through full scale field installation and insitu testing in deep deposits of soft saturated marine clays. The field study has indicated that the new foundation technologies carry the best assurance of safety, speed and economy and may provide an efficient alternatives to existing foundations in difficult soil conditions.

Innovative Foundations in Poor Ground

St. Louis, Missouri

In the present paper, attention is chiefly focused on ground treatment approach which merits designers’ preference in most situations, not because of greater latitude in terms of choice but also because of better assurance of performance. Some innovative foundation techniques have been introduced. The performance of these techniques have been evaluated through full scale field installation and insitu testing in deep deposits of soft saturated marine clays. The field study has indicated that the new foundation technologies carry the best assurance of safety, speed and economy and may provide an efficient alternatives to existing foundations in difficult soil conditions.
