Deep soil mixing (DSM) is an increasingly popular ground improvement technique to provide foundation support for structures and to mitigate seismic hazards. DSM is a powerful method thanks to its ability to treat nearly all soils and its flexibility to form different geometric shapes. This presentation will provide an overview of the DSM construction method and typical QA/QC measures. Case histories will be used to illustrate the design and construction of DSM to mitigate seismic hazards including surface fault rupture, liquefaction and lateral spreading. Attendees will gain a deeper understanding of how DSM can be employed to solve challenging earthquake engineering problems.
Keller North America provides a wide range of geotechnical engineering and construction services to improve soils in-place and to both construct new and rehabilitate foundations. The techniques that will be discussed include Compaction & Jet Grouting, Earth Retention and Shoring, Vibro Compaction & Replacement, Micropiles, Soil Mixing for Deep Basement Excavations, and Pile Driving. Within our range of services, a Ground Modification solution is generally available for the toughest subsurface conditions.
