Introduction: The construction of structures in the coastal areas consisting of weak soils at shallow depths requires due attention to be given on safety and stability of surrounding structures which may be under question due to poor engineering properties of weak soils. So, proper attention must be required in designing the foundation of structures in such conditions. Soil in these areas has to be improved using an efficient and economical ground improvement technique.
Ground improvement of loos cohesionless soils can be achieved by different methods such as excavation and replacement, compaction piles, compaction with explosives, vibro-flotation, well point system, dynamic compaction, grouting, etc. The selection of the most suitable method depends on different factors, including solid conditions, maximum depth of the compaction, required degree of the compaction, type of structures to be supported, etc.
