This book contains papers presented at a session related to various theoretical and experimental developments on foundation analysis, design and construction. The papers were written by both researchers and practitioners. Topics include the development of a nonlinear model for prediction of movement of drilled shafts in expansive clay; new techniques for lime stabilization of expansive clay for foundation construction; evaluation of soil improvement achieved by sand columns for foundation construction by means of plate load tests; uplift capacity of vertical multihelix, and inclined plate anchors; bearing capacity and settlement characteristics of shallow foundations on granular trench made in clay, and with geoweb used as reinforcement in granular soil.

Subject Headings: Soil stabilization | Soil settlement | Granular soils | Foundation construction | Expansive soils | Shallow foundations | Soil analysis | Load bearing capacity
