Compaction Grouting in a Canyon Fill

Flexural Cracking of Compacted Clay in Landfill Covers

Roller Compacted Concrete IV
This engineering manual Roller-Compacted Concrete from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers provides information and guidance on the use of roller-compacted...

Estimating Clay Liner and Cover Permeability Using Computational Neural Networks
The ability to provide a quick estimate of the permeability value to be expected in laboratory testing (of field samples) would help to predict potential problems in meeting the permeability...

Methods to Reduce the Settlement of Embankments on Soft Clay: A Review
New trends have been observed during the past ten years in the practice of settlement control for embankments on soft clays: they include increased use of rigid (piles) or semi-rigid (stone...

Predicting Shallow Foundation Settlement in Sands from DMT
The dilatometer test is ideal for predicting the settlement of shallow foundations. It directly measures a modulus of the soil and has been correlated to predict stress history. Recently,...

Soil-Structure Interaction During Mining Induced Ground Movements
Mining induced subsidence can result in significant ground deformation, which is generally non-uniform. Although this deformation occurs slowly with small inertial forces, it often results...

Long Term Performance of Raft and Footing Foundations Above Clayey Silt
Two multistorey buildings have recently been constructed on a 30-m thick layer of clayey silt in downtown Fredericton, New Brunswick. The Bank of Montreal building is ten storeys high...

Performance of Three Large-Diameter Oil Tanks on Soft Clay
Preloading using a clay surcharge at the proposed locations of 3 large-diameter steel oil storage tanks founded on a 20-m thick stratum of soft Nile-delta silty clay produced about 1.5...

Settlement of Deep Compacted Fills in California
Measured settlement of deep compacted engineered fills from a single site were summarized and compared to data from other sites. The data indicate that the rate and magnitude of movement...

Compaction Grouting Stops Settlement of an Operating Water Treatment Plant
In early 1978, about a month into full-time operation, the new filter plant building for the water treatment plant for the City of Glenwood Springs, Colorado, experienced distress due...

Soil Improvement to Mitigate Settlements under Existing Structures
Settlements of sites with existing structures are more difficult to mitigate than those of sites without structures. Equipment access, work area, noise, dust, vibrations, and cost are...

A Comparison of Three Soil Improvement Techniques to Densify Liquefaction Susceptible Sands
Deep soil densification programs using vibratory probe compaction, vibro-replacement and terraprobe methods have been completed on a naval submarine base to limit potential settlements...

Settlement of Compacted Fills Caused by Wetting
Post-construction wetting of fills can cause swell or compression, depending on soil composition and stress conditions just before wetting. The various factors affecting swell/compression...

Case History of a Collapsible Soil Fill
Collapse settlement of a deep compacted fill led to damage of a group of condominium units. The fill consisted of a highly heterogeneous mixture of coarse- to fine-grained soil containing...

Settlement of Peats and Organic Soils
New advances in investigation of settlement of peats and organic soils and issues related to construction over such soft ground are presented. Peats and organic soils are well known for...

Comparison of Headcut Advance Testing and Soil Test Results
This paper presents the results of a study conducted in a flume to determine headcut advance rates of two base soils compacted at various compaction moistures and placement energies. The...
