This Seminar provides a better understanding of strengthening weak soils for laying a good foundation. It includes how ground improvement techniques used to strengthen weak soils without altering soil properties and yielding better bearing capacity and also its applications in various other constructions. On completion of this seminar, students will understand the methods to improve weak soils, usage of soil as a construction material; cost reduction, design aspects reinforced earth wall, grouting process, and densification. They will interpret and identify the construction problem related to foundation soil and also solution by choosing suitable ground improvement techniques for improving.
