This text is intended for an advanced course in ground modification or engineering soil improvement at the senior or post-graduate level. It is designed to help engineers gain competence and creativity in devising alternative solutions to difficult foundation and earth construction problems and in evaluating the effectiveness of their solutions before, during and after construction. A range of ground modification techniques are presented, with a focus on how these techniques can help improve soil stability, reduce deformation, control seepage and increase erosion resistance.
