 ABSTRACT

Conventional deep soil mixing techniques are often used to improve soft soil properties in terms of their settlement, bearing capacity and shear strength characteristics. This technique has a wide range of applications such as improvement of embankment stability, slope stability, braced excavation and sea walls which can be performed in different soils like clays and peats. This paper gives the concept and theory of this method and describes different Geotechnical properties contains installation, binder type, settlement and bearing capacity of composite ground.

Keywords: Cement columns, stabilization, binder type, composite ground
