OBJECTIVES:

  • To make the student appreciate the need for different ground improvement methods adopted for improving the properties of remoulded and in-situ soils by adopting different techniques such as in situ densification and dewatering methods.
  • To make the student understand how the reinforced earth technology and soil nailing can obviate the problems posed by the conventional retaining walls.
  • To enable the students to know how geotextiles and geosynthetics can be used to improve the engineering performance of soils.
  • To make the student learn the concepts, purpose and effects of grouting.

UNIT-1

In situ densification methods- in situ densification of granular soils- vibration at ground surface and at depth, impact at ground and at depth – in situ densification of cohesive soils – pre loading – vertical drains – sand drains and geo drains – stone columns.
