Abstract: Bangkok, Jakarta, Penang and Singapore are some of the major urban centres where soft ground conditions pose numerous geotechnical problems. Work in these areas of ground improvement has only recently taken on significant proportions in this region, in parallel with the present upsurge in variety and scope of construction more often requiring specialist services. Some methods such as soil nailing and geotextiles for soil reinforcement have yet to attain the degrees of implementation and acceptance of ground improvement techniques like deep compaction and the speeding up of consolidation, hence the corresponding lack of publication on their application in projects. -from Authors
