Sammanfattning : Ground improvement by deep mixing (DM) is a generic term used for a number of methods in which a binding agent, often lime and/or cement, is mechanically mixed with the soil to increase its engineering properties. The inherent variability with respect to the engineering properties of the improved soil is high due to the variations in geology and the complex mixing process. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Reduced climate impact is a worldwide strive today. The foundation engineering industry is continuously searching for more sustainable solutions to reduce resource usage and pollutions directly or indirectly. One such solution is timber piling, as an alternative to the commonly used concrete and steel piles. LÄS MER
3. Embankments founded on sulphide clay : - some aspects related to ground improvement by vertical drains
Sammanfattning : In this thesis, some aspects concerning building embankments founded on sulphide clay are studied, with special reference to ground improvement by preloading in combination with prefabricated vertical drains (PVD’s). The main purpose of the research was to increase empirical knowledge of the mechanical behaviour of sulphide clays subjected to embankment loadings and of the interaction between vertical drains and sulphide clays.

5. DEM Modelling of Unbound Granular Materials for Transport Infrastructures : On soil fabric and rockfill embankments
Sammanfattning : Unbound granular materials (UGM) are widely used as load-bearing layers and for embankment construction within transport infrastructures. These play a significant role on operation and maintenance of transportation systems. However, pavement and railway engineering still today rely heavily on empirical models based on macroscopic observations. LÄS MER
