Description / Abstract:


This Gcotcchnical Special Publication contains fifty eight peer reviewed technical papers that represent the latest advances in ground modification and seismic mitigation. Presented during the GeoShanghai International Conference held in Shanghai, China, June 6-8, 2006, the papers discuss a variety of topics related to deep mixing, prefabricated vertical drains, ground improvement by granular columns, vacuum consolidation, soil treatment, ground reinforcement by nails and anchors, combined soil modifications and geosynthetics. This proceedings provides coverage of soil improvement for foundations, suspension bridges, railway tracks, embankments on columns, analysis of composite ground, liquefaction mitigation by electro Osmosis, stone columns, jet grouting, and wick drains; seismic performance of underground structures, bridge approaches and immerse tunnels. This collection of papers covers recent case histories, theoretical advances, laboratory and field testing, and design methods beneficial to practitioners, researchers, and other professionals.
