The increasing need to redevelop land in urban areas has led to major development in the field of ground improvement, a process that is continuing and expanding. Vibratory deep compaction and grouting techniques have also been increasingly applied to solving the problems of urban development, whether from tunnelling, excavation, building renovation or bearing capacity improvement and settlement reduction.

The second edition of this well established book continues to provide an international overview of the major techniques in use. Comprehensively updated in line with recent developments, each chapter is written by an acknowledged expert in the field.

Ground Improvements, Second Edition is written for geotechnical and civil engineers, and for contractors working in grouting, ground improvement, piling and environmental engineering. Advanced students will find the book a valuable source of reference.
