OVERVIEW OF THE STATUS OF GROUND MODIFICATION TECHNIQUES. PROCEEDINGS, SOIL STABILIZATION TECHNOLOGY EXCHANGE WORKSHOP, 7-8 NOVEMBER 1989, DENVER, COLORADO

The acceptance of the individual methods of ground modification by the engineering and construction fraternity has depended upon their economic advantages, the research and development performed and the subsequent design rationale available for each method. Recently, there has been a great interest in all of these techniques with the recognition of the potential role that they can play in the environmental arena which uses a different set of economic considerations than the normal construction area. Two tables are presented. One is from The Internaitonal Conference on Deep Foundations, Beijing, China, Welsh (1986), presenting an assessment of Ground Modification Construction in the United States. Table II, "Budget Cost and Potential Insitu Test Improvement Results of Ground Modification in Granular Soils," is from Insitu '86 (Welsh 1986).
