The pneumatic flow mixing method was developed to stabilize dredged soil and surplus soil for promoting their beneficial use in 1999. The pneumatic flow mixing method is a new type of the ex-situ cement stabilization techniques, in which dredged soil and surplus soil is mixed with a relatively small amount of chemical binder without any mixing paddles and blades in a pipeline. When a relatively large amount of compressed air is injected into the pipeline, soil can be separated into small blocks. When binder is injected into the pipeline, the soil block and binder are thoroughly mixed by means of turbulent flow generated in the soil block during transporting. As this method has many benefits ? rapid and large scale execution can be conducted with low cost ? it has been applied to many land reclamation projects, backfilling behind earth retaining wall projects and shallow stabilization projects using dredged soils and surplus soils. The book presents the state of the art in the pneumatic flow mixing method, and covers recent technologies, research activities and know-how in machinery, design, construction technology and quality control and assurance. The Pneumatic Flow Mixing Method is a useful reference tool for engineers and researchers involved in admixture stabilization technology everywhere, regardless of local soil conditions and a variety in applications.

Soft soils present particular challenges to engineers and an understanding of the specific characteristics of these soils is indispensable. A collection of papers from the Fourth International Conference on Soft Soil Engineering, Vancouver, 2006, this book covers laboratory techniques such as numerical modelling, theoretical analysis and constitutive modelling, which give new insights into soft soil material behavior. It discusses how large-scale testing in the field is providing important information in areas such as slope stability and soft soil improvements.

Highways provide the arteries of modern society. The interaction of road, rail and other transport infrastructure with the ground is unusually intimate, and thus needs to be well-understood to provide economic and reliable infrastructure for society. Challenges include not only the design of new infrastructure (often on problematic ground), but increasingly the management and maintenance of aging assets in the face of issues such as climate change. This book is the written record of the first International Conference on Transportation Geotechnics held under the auspices of the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering, held in Nottingham, UK, in 2008. It comprises about 100 papers from a global selection of researchers and practitioners on: – Slope instability, stabilisation, and asset management; – Construction on soft ground; – Interaction with structures and geogrid reinforced soil; – Effect of climate change and vegetation; – Highways, pavements and subgrade; – Railway geotechnics; – Soil improvement; – Characterisation and recycling of geomaterials. A further part of this collection contains papers on unbound aggregate materials as used in pavement construction and drainage. They formed the ‘Unbound Aggregates in Roads (UNBAR7)’ theme of the conference which followed on from the previous symposia of that title, also held in Nottingham, UK, most recently in 2004. The volume will be of interest to professionals and academics in geotechnical, highway, railway and general civil engineering.

Written by an author with more than 25 years of field and academic experience, Soil Improvement and Ground Modification Methods explains ground improvement technologies for converting marginal soil into soil that will support all types of structures. Soil improvement is the alteration of any property of a soil to improve its engineering performance. Some sort of soil improvement must happen on every construction site. This combined with rapid urbanization and the industrial growth presents a huge dilemma to providing a solid structure at a competitive price. The perfect guide for new or practicing engineers, this reference covers projects involving soil stabilization and soil admixtures, including utilization of industrial waste and by-products, commercially available soil admixtures, conventional soil improvement techniques, and state-of-the-art testing methods. Conventional soil improvement techniques and state-of-the-art testing methods Methods for mitigating or removing the risk of liquefaction in the event of major vibrations Structural elements for stabilization of new or existing construction industrial waste/by-products, commercially available soil Innovative techniques for drainage, filtration, dewatering, stabilization of waste, and contaminant control and removal

The Deep Mixing Method (DMM), a deep in-situ soil stabilization technique using cement and/or lime as a stabilizing agent, was developed in Japan and in the Nordic countries independently in the 1970s. Numerous research efforts have been made in these areas investigating properties of treated soil, behavior of DMM improved ground under static and dynamic conditions, design methods, and execution techniques. Due to its wide applicability and high improvement effect, the method has become increasingly popular in many countries in Europe, Asia and in the USA. In the past three to four decades, traditional mechanical mixing has been improved to meet changing needs. New types of the technology have also been developed in the last 10 years; e.g. the high pressure injection mixing method and the method that combines mechanical mixing and high pressure injection mixing technologies. The design procedures for the DM methods were standardized across several organizations in Japan and revised several times. Information on these rapid developments will benefit those researchers and practitioners who are involved in ground improvement throughout the world. The book presents the state of the art in Deep Mixing methods, and covers recent technologies, research activities and know-how in machinery, design, construction technology and quality control and assurance. The Deep Mixing Method is a useful reference tool for engineers and researchers involved in DMM technology everywhere, regardless of local soil conditions and variety in applications.

The increasing need to redevelop land in urban areas has led to major development in the field of ground improvement, a process that is continuing and expanding. Vibratory deep compaction and grouting techniques have also been increasingly applied to solving the problems of urban development, whether from tunnelling, excavation, building renovation or bearing capacity improvement and settlement reduction. The second edition of this well established book continues to provide an international overview of the major techniques in use. Comprehensively updated in line with recent developments, each chapter is written by an acknowledged expert in the field. Ground Improvements is written for geotechnical and civil engineers, and for contractors working in grouting, ground improvement, piling and environmental engineering.
