Abstract: This proceedings, Foundations and Ground Improvement, consists of papers presented and accepted for publication for the specialty conference, 2001: A Geo-Odyssey, sponsored by the Geo-Institute of the American Society of Civil Engineers and Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. The conference was held June 9-13, 2001, in Blacksburg, Virginia. The conference focused on uses of new foundation systems and ground improvement techniques across the spectrum—in urban construction projects such as the Boston Central Artery, the Woodrow Wilson Bridge Project in Virginia, and the I-15 Project in Salt Lake City—in difficult geologic conditions such as weathered rock, residual soil and karst—and in challenging situations requiring remediation and emergency response. Other topics covered by this proceedings include (1) urban construction problems, (2) case histories, (3) deep soil mixing, soil-cement columns, drilled shafts, micropiles and minipiles, (4) jet grouting, compaction grouting, compensation grouting, and grouted soil properties, and (5) soil admixtures.
