Preloading and prefabricated vertical drains design for offshore land reclamation projects

The Changi East Reclamation Project in Singapore necessitated land reclamation in off-shore conditions. The project comprises the installation of prefabricated vertical drains and the subsequent placement of surcharge to accelerate the consolidation of the underlying marine clay. This paper discusses the various theories, considerations and design methodologies for the ground treatment of marine clay with prefabricated vertical drains in such off-shore land reclamation projects. For the covering abstract see ITRD E125180.
