The gate station is part of a major natural gas transmission system. He has been actively engaged in teaching, research and consulting work in geotechnical engineering in general and soil properties, in-situ and laboratory testing, soil improvement and land reclamation in particular for more than 20 years. The approaches used in the assessment of earthquake-induced geotechnical hazard, as well as the philosophy adopted in the engineering design and evaluation of seismic retrofit measures, were found to be generally applicable to all the case histories. This edited compilation contains a collection of Chapters from invited experts in various areas of ground improvement, who have illustrated the basic concepts and the applications of different ground improvement techniques using real projects that they have been involved in. As a whole, different soils or ground materials are discussed by about 60 authors and co-authors including slurry, soft clays, sands, tailings and waste materials.

Written by an international group of contributors, Ground Improvement Case Histories: Compaction, Grouting and Geosynthetics provides over 700 pages of international case-histories. For most of the critical foundations, liquefaction was not predicted below the pile foundations, and the main geotechnical hazard was noted to arise from liquefaction-induced lateral spreading. Written by an international group of experts,. An extensive list of references is provided at the end of each chapter. Professor Jian J Chu, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore Dr Chu is a professor and the holder of James M. The subduction zone is located off the west coast of Vancouver Island. Of these 22 locations, 7 columns were successfully installed at alternate locations by relocating within 1.

Ground improvement has been both a science and art, with significant developments observed through ancient history. Before he joined Iowa State, he was the Director of the Centre for Infrastructure Systems at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. He has been actively engaged in teaching, research and consulting work in geotechnical engineering in general and soil properties, in-situ and laboratory testing, soil improvement and land reclamation in particular for more than 20 years. From the use of straw as blended infill with soils for additional strength during the ancient Roman civilizations, and the use of elephants for compaction of earth dams during the early Asian civilizations, the concepts of reinforced earth with geosynthetics, use of electrokinetics and thermal modifications of soils have come. Ground improvement works have become increasingly challenging when more and more problematic soils and marginal land have to be utilized for infrastructure development. From United Kingdom to U.

Prediction of site-specific ground response for the identified seismic risk levels including assessment of site-liquefaction potential 4. Empirical methods are also unable to estimate ground displacement patterns on the surface and at different depths and, therefore, they cannot account for the presence of human-made site features i. From the use of straw as blended infill with soils for additional strength during the ancient Roman civilizations, and the use of elephants for compaction of earth dams during the early Asian civilizations, the concepts of reinforced earth with geosynthetics, use of electrokinetics and thermal modifications of soils have come a long way. Pages and cover are clean and intact. Professor Indraratna is the author of more than 500 publications, including 6 books, about 200 journal papers and 50 invited keynote and plenary lectures. The ground displacements for the nonliquefiable silty zones within the northern half of the site were computed to be less than about 0.

Significant amperage build-up was noted during penetration of the upper 9โ€”11 m of soils that comprised gravel, cobbles, and boulders, resulting in probe withdrawal prior to reaching the design depth of 18 m. Six stone columns, from the initially proposed densification pattern of 294 columns, had to be deleted due to concern that installation at these locations may result in unacceptable deformations of adjacent gas pipelines. Keywords Soil Liquefaction Ground Improvement Deep Dynamic Compaction Vibro-Replacement Stone Columns Compaction Grouting Gravel Compaction Piles Acknowledgments The authors are grateful to the B. The primary concern with respect to the subduction earthquake is the duration of shaking, expected to be in the order of 2 min, or more than four times that of the intraplate earthquakes. As such, this information has also been presented concisely in this introductory section. These materials are underlain by a compact to dense soil stratum. Ground improvement works have become increasingly challenging when more and more problematic soils and marginal land have to be utilized for infrastructure development.

Ground Improvement: Case Histories

ground improvement chu professor jian chu professor jian indraratna buddhima indraratna buddhima rujikiatkamjorn cholachat

During the vibro-replacement work, field measurements were periodically carried out to measure the groundwater level in the piezometers to assess any potential buildup of pore water pressures in the soil mass near the riverbank. This edited compilation contains a collection of Chapters from invited experts in various areas of ground improvement, who have illustrated the basic concepts and the applications of different ground improvement techniques using real projects that they have been involved in. Each case-history provides an overview of the specific technology followed by applications, with some cases offering a comprehensive back-analysis through numerical modelling. The site engineer was informed immediately if deformations in excess of 3 mm difference from preconstruction measurements were observed. The case histories from many countries ranging from Asia, America, Australia and Europe are addressed. About this Item: Elsevier Science, 2005.

An extremely reader friendly chapter format. The use of large and stiff stone columns and subsequent sand drains in the past has now been replaced by quicker to install and more effective prefabricated vertical drains, which have also eliminated the need for more expensive soil improvement methods.

Ground improvement works have become increasingly challenging when more and more problematic soils and marginal land have to be utilized for infrastructure development. Lateral ground movements between about 25 mm and 60 mm were noted within the upper 6 m. However, due to heavy penetration resistance encountered at a number of locations, a combination of 406 mm 16 in and 508 mm 20 in steel drive tubes were used.

May show signs of minor shelf wear and contain limited notes and highlighting. Professor Indraratna is the author of more than 500 publications, including 6 books, about 200 journal papers and 50 invited keynote and plenary lectures. The initial target was to install all compaction piles using the 508 mm 20 in steel tube. Boulders, concrete, and timber obstructions were encountered during column installation at some locations, generally at depths of some 3โ€”6 m below the existing ground surface preventing the installation of another 22 stone columns. Differential lateral displacements between adjacent footings in the order of 400โ€”700 mm were considered acceptable from structural considerations. Geosynthetics and Other Inclusions 12 Chapters It contains a collection of specialised chapters from invited experts from both academia and practice in various areas of physical forms of ground improvement, illustrating the basic concepts and the applications of different ground improvement techniques via real-life projects.

The Fraser River extends through the area and has developed a delta some 30 km long and 25 km wide. Clearly, advances in the state of practice in seismic evaluation and retrofit of facilities require dissemination, particularly within the structural and geotechnical engineering disciplines. The outcome of this previous analysis was supplemented with site-specific soil strength information, knowledge gathered from past experience with detailed evaluations of similar configurations, and observation of pipeline performance in past earthquakes. Ground improvement has been both a science and art, with significant developments observed through ancient history. The book provides some first-hand information on the 2011 Tohuko earthquake disasters in Japan, the most recent update on the theories and methods for geotechnical analyses and predictions, and the latest methods and practices in geotechnical engineering, in particular, dealing with geotechnical hazard.
