Embankment construction projects on very soft soil have often given rise to serious issues in the field of geotechnical engineering. Some have been successfully resolved whereas others have resulted in severe distortions. The accumulation of practical knowledge and facts, in combination with the application of new technologies, is essential in soft soil engineering, and forms the basis of this volume. All phases of the design and construction processes are treated exhaustively, from the first investigation step to the monitoring of constructed work. This book presents the development concepts necessary for the project stages and discusses in great detail the construction methods, displacement estimations, stability analyses, monitoring, and various other aspects involved. Extensive attention is furthermore paid to the application of geosynthetics as a tool to improve the stability of soft soils and embankments. Including various tables and practical data for many geographic areas in the world, this reference volume is essential reading for engineers and researchers in geotechnical engineering, construction, and related disciplines.
