A Review on Useful Ground Improvement Techniques

Varinder Singh, Meenu Bala, Mohit Talwar


Ground improvement is the most imaginative field of geotechnical engineering. It is a field in which the engineer mould the ground to adopt the project requirements, by altering the natural state of the soil, instead of having to alter the design in response to the grounds natural limitations. The result usually include saving in construction cost and reduction of implementation time. There are number of techniques available for improving the mechanical and engineering properties of the soil. When the soil on a project site cannot support the loads, ground improvement to increase strength, reduce compressibility, and enhance performance under applied loadings may be required.
