Ground Improvement by Deep Vibratory Methods

2nd Edition

Klaus Kirsch, Fabian Kirsch
January 12, 2019

Vibro compaction and vibro stone columns are the two dynamic methods of soil improvement most commonly used worldwide. These methods have been developed over almost eighty years and are now of unrivalled importance as modern foundation measures. Vibro compaction works on granular soils by...

Rapid Load Testing on Piles: Interpretation Guidelines

1st Edition

Paul Holscher, Henk Brassinga, Michael Brown, Peter Middendorp, Maarten Profittlich, Frits A. van Tol
November 21, 2018

A Rapid Load Test (RLT), developed to determine the initial stiffness and bearing capacity, is an economical and practical alternative to a Static Load Test (SLT). The broad application of RLT, however, was hampered by uncertainty about the interpretation of the test results. This book offers clear...

Geosynthetic Encased Columns for Soft Soil Improvement

1st Edition

Márcio Almeida, Mario Riccio, Iman Hosseinpour, Dimiter Alexiew
October 30, 2018

The geosynthetic encased column (GEC) is a relatively recent method developed for soft soil improvement. The method was firstly introduced as a concept in the 1980s and first practical applications started in the 1990s. GECs have been widely used in some parts of the world for the last three...
