Summary:
This manual provides practical knowledge and experience gathered in the Netherlands in the field of design and construction of earth structures both on and into highly compressible subsoils of low bearing capacity. It assists the designer by supplying a great deal of background information, as well as compiling requisite knowledge of earth structures and subsoils. A considerable number of Dutch experts report on

Thorough attention is paid to the calculation methods available for design and construction, including the establishment of the soil parameters required, with emphasis on probabilistic safety analysis. An inventory is made of the properties of natural types of soil, secondary materials, light weight materials, raising and filling construction methods and techniques, methods to speed up consolidation and limit deformation, whilst comparing these from a technical and economic point of view. The supervision of construction (and maintenance) by monitoring deformation and stability behaviour is discussed in detail."@en ;
