Abstract:

The precompression technique combined with vertical sand drains is often applicable where structure loads are reasonably uniform and do not include heavy concentrated loadings and where earth fills for highways do not exceed 40 to 50 ft, although this limitation is variable. The method often saves very large sums and can be used where subsoil conditions are unusually poor. Where properly applied, the method can be used with confidence. Author
