Ground Improvement By Neeraj Singh
WHY GROUND IMPROVEMENT. • Development of infrastructures in cities compelled the engineers to improve the properties of soil to bear the load transferred by the structures. • As the land available may not be suitable for the structural load. • The purpose of these techniques to increase bearing capacity of soil and reduce the settlement to a considerable extent.
Effects Of Ground Improvement • The process reduces the permeability of soil mass. • The process reduce compressibility and consolidation. • The process improves the bearing capacity of soil mass. • The process is used to make an area trafficable within short period of time for emergency & military purpose.
