Technical paper: A field study of the use of the dynamic consolidation ground treatment technique on soft alluvial soil

by J A Charles and K S Watts, BRE

This paper was first publsihed in GE’s July 1982 issue


Field observations have been made at a site where dynamic consolidation has been used in an attempt to increase the undrained shear strength of saturated soft alluvial soil. Pore water pressures and undrained shear strength have been monitored before, during and subsequent to dynamic consolidation. The effectiveness of this ground treatment technique on soft alluvial soil has been assessed.
