This proceedings, In-Situ Deep Soil Improvement, contains papers presented at sessions sponsored by the Geotechnical Engineering Division of ASCE in conjunction with the ASCE National Convention in Atlanta, Georgia, October 9-13, 1994. They mainly discuss the use of deep dynamic compaction for densification of collapsible soils, liquefiable soils and waste materials, and provide a practical summary of what has been learned regarding the potential for improvement in these materials. In addition to the topic of dynamic compaction, other methods for in-situ soil improvement, such as stone columns, deep soil mixing, and vacuum consolidation, are presented.

Subject Headings: Soil stabilization | Field tests | Compacted soils | Consolidated soils | Soil mixing | Geotechnical engineering | Professional societies | Soil dynamics
