Ground improvement techniques are a key part of construction, and their success depends on the specific characteristics of a site. Geotechnical Investigation and Improvement of Ground Conditions covers practical information on ground improvement and site investigation, considering rock properties and engineering geology in relation to construction. Due to the fact that success in ground improvement depends on a particular site, interpreting information collected during geotechnical investigation for a project is vitally important. This title considers geotechnical investigation for construction projects, including classic case studies with geotechnical significance. The book introduces the field, and then covers soil compaction, soil stabilization, drainage and dewatering, grouting methods, stone column method, geotextiles, fabrics and earth reinforcement, miscellaneous methods and tools for ground improvement, geotechnical investigation for construction projects, and forensic geotechnical engineering. It concludes with a series of site-specific case studies.
