SF7203 GROUND IMPROVEMENT Syllabus | Anna University Regulation 2013 ME Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering First Year Second Semester Syllabus.  Below is the Anna University 2013 Regulation Syllabus for 2nd Semester for Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering, Textbooks, Reference books, Exam portions, Question Bank, Previous year question papers, Model question papers, Class notes, Important 2 marks, 8 marks, 16 marks topics.
It is applicable for all students admitted in the Academic year 2013-2014 onwards for all its Affiliated institutions in Tamil Nadu.


 Students will be exposed to various problems associated with soil deposits and methods to evaluate them. The different techniques will be taught to them to improve the characteristics of difficult soils as well as design techniques required to implement various ground improvement methods.

UNIT I DEWATERING 9 Introduction – Scope and necessity of ground improvement in Geotechnical engineering basic concepts. Drainage – Ground Water lowering by well points, deep wells, vacuum and electro- osmotic methods. Stabilization by thermal and freezing techniques - Applications. 

UNIT II COMPACTION AND SAND DRAINS 9 Insitu compaction of granular and cohesive soils, Shallow and Deep compaction methods – Sand piles – Concept, design, factors influencing compaction. Blasting and dynamic consolidation – Preloading with sand drains, fabric drains, wick drains etc. – Theories of sand drain – design and relative merits of various methods – Case studies. 

UNIT III STONE COLUMN, LIME PILES AND SOIL NAILING 9 Stone column, lime piles – Functions – Methods of installation – design, estimation of load carrying capacity and settlement. Root piles and soil nailing – methods of installation – Design and Applications - Soil liquefaction mitigation methods - case studies. 

UNIT IV EARTH REINFORCEMENT 9 Earth reinforcement – Principles and basic mechanism of reinforced earth, simple design: Synthetic and natural fiber based Geotextiles and their applications. Filtration, drainage, separation, erosion control – case studies. 

UNIT V GROUTING 9 Grouting – Types of grout – Suspension and solution grouts – Basic requirements of grout. Grouting equipment – injection methods – jet grouting – grout monitoring – Electro – Chemical stabilization – Stabilization with cement, lime - Stabilization of expansive clays – case studies. TOTAL : 45 PERIODS 

 Based on the knowledge gained student will be in a position to identify and evaluate the deficiencies if any in the deposits of the given project area and capable of providing alternative methods to improve its quality so that the structures built on it will be stable and serve the intended purpose.
