EXAMPLES OF GROUND RESPONSE TO VARIOUS TYPES OF STRUCTURAL FOUNDATION CONSTRUCTION

As a prelude to the new case histories reported in this book, 17 cases of construction activities are cited that identify the ground responses to various types and methods of construction in the light of the geological age and relevant geological structure. In most cases, unexpected events occurred in spite of prior geological and geotechnical investigations. Whether new treatment is seen in old examples or old treatment of new examples, the ultimate objective is to underline the value of case histories and the real need in site investigation reports to isolate and interpret those particular aspects of the geology relevant to the proposed engineering works, in the light of precedence, so that all concerned may be aware of the likely consequences of the construction operational types and steps up to completion.
