Ground Modification and Seismic Mitigation covers recent case histories, theoretical advances, laboratory and field testing and design methods in ground modification and seismic mitigation. This Geotechnical Special Publication contains 58 technical papers that were presented at the GeoShanghai Conference held in Shanghai, China from June 6-8, 2006. The book discusses topics related to deep mixing, prefabricated vertical drains, ground improvement by granular columns, vacuum consolidation, soil treatment, ground reinforcement by nails and anchors, combined soil modifications and geosynthetics. The first section of the book covers soil improvement for foundations, suspension bridges, railway tracks, embankments on columns, analysis of composite ground, liquefaction mitigation by electro-Osmosis, stone columns, jet grouting and wick drains. The second section of the book discusses the seismic performance of underground structures, bridge approaches and immerse tunnels. These papers will be beneficial to practitioners, researchers, and other geotechnical professionals.
