The last twenty-five years have seen considerable growth and development in the field of geotechnical contracting. There are few civil engineering and construction projects that do not incorporate the skills and expertise of the geotechnical engineer. Ground Improvement concentrates on the principal in situ mechanical and grouting techniques in use in Europe and North America for the improvement of the engineering properties of ground. A chapter is devoted to each major technique and reviews the history and development of the process, its applications and limitations, design concepts and the plant used. Each technique is illustrated by current case histories and supported by photographs and diagrams. Some of the techniques discussed are finding increasing use in the emerging field of environmental engineering.
