During the execution stage of a construction project, several foundation issues are faced. On a construction site, the soil's natural state may not always be suitable to fully support significant structural loads. In such cases, it is necessary to treat the soil in order to increase its bearing capacity and reduce anticipated settlement. Certain ground enhancement techniques are frequently employed to enhance the bearing capacity, shear strength, settlement characteristics, drainage, etc. of subsoil. At various construction sites, ground improvement is widely recognized as a cutting-edge method of amending soil in foundations to provide improved efficacy under design and/or operational loading circumstances. Ground improvement modifies the properties of the soil, enabling various construction techniques.
