Abstract

The use of shallow stabilization and floating-type cement-treated columns has been developed as a method with acceptable settlement for maintaining the proper functioning of high standard roads or high embankments on soft grounds. So it is most important to predict the total settlement for this type of improved ground. In this study, Consolidation and deformation properties of this type of improved grounds were clarified by the field observation results obtained from two types of full scale test embankments. Further, a method for predicting the total settlement for this type of improved ground with respect to the improvement ratio and depth is proposed. Its validity is confirmed from the field observation results of the improved grounds.
