ASCE Buffalo Section - BAPG January 2019 Dinner Meeting

Developments in Ground Improvement Techniques

Miranda Slomkowski and David Sandstrom, from Menard Group USA

At sites with problematic soils, the conventional approaches have been removal and replacement or piling.  In recent years there has been a proliferation of the use of a wide variety of ground improvement techniques.  In many situations, ground improvement techniques offer cost and scheduling advantages over the conventional approaches. Ground improvement can be used to support warehouses, buildings, material storage piles, processing areas, embankments, fills, roadways, port facilities, storage tanks, containment structures, and platforms. For structures, when ground improvement is used, it is possible to eliminate pile caps, grade beams and structural slabs, and shallow foundation systems can be used.
