Abstract

A comparative examination of the use of sophisticated approaches for ground improvement in poor soils is the primary goal of this research. The majority of nations place a high premium on hardening soft ground in order to create secure foundations for various types of infrastructure. The lifetime of foundations may be reduced by unstable soil, which mandates the use of a soil stabilizing technology. The use of suitable admixtures is a prominent method of soil stabilization [1]. Using bagasse ash and stone dust as admixtures for stabilizing soft clay is the goal of this research, which examines their capacity to compress and penetrate. Certain ground enhancement procedures may be used to improve the ground. Soil density is increased through vibro-compaction, which uses strong depth vibrators. A vacuum pump is utilized in the process of vacuum consolidation, which is used to improve soils that are soft. Pore water may be gradually removed using the preloading approach. Crystallization or glass formation is accomplished using electric current heating [1]. The freezing of ground water transforms it into ice, which increases their combined forces and makes them impenetrable to outside elements. Stone columns constructed using the vibro-replacement technique increase the bearing capacity of the soil, while the vibro displacement approach moves the soil. Water may move through fine-grained soils because to a process called electroosmosis. Due to the rapid population increase, urbanization, and infrastructural development in recent years, there has been a decrease in the quality of land available for construction. The only option left is to utilise soft and weak soils nearby by strengthening their strength using current ground improvement procedures for building purposes. Current ground improvement methods include replacing soil, installing vertical drains and stone columns, vibro-compacting and dynamically compactioning the soil, using vibro-piers and soil reinforcement, as well as grouting and stabilizing the soil with admixtures [1]. These methods are all currently available. Soil carrying capacity and settling are the goals of these procedures. Reinforcing the soil using steel, glass, different polymers in the form of strips or grids, and geosynthetics is one method of improving the ground.
