Abstract: During the last four decades, China has made significant improvement in various sectors of its infrastructure, including high-speed railways, long-span and cross-sea bridges, large dams, long- and large-diameter tunnels, and land reclamation. Many new soil-improvement technologies have been successfully developed, improved, and implemented on these major projects.
