About the book
The Compendium Deep Foundation (volumes I and II) has developed in a short time into the standard reference work in the field of deep foundation processes and machinery. The progressive development and innovation in process technology and machinery in recent years provided the impetus for the publication of a completely new reference book, the Compendium Deep Foundation.
Part 2 of the new Compendium Deep Foundation comprehensively deals with current processes, machinery, application areas and IT solutions for ground improvement. It provides a summary of the current state of the technology and offers a comprehensive overview of the various soil mixing processes for deep compaction as well as dynamic compaction and rapid impact compaction. Numerous clear illustrations, high-quality rendering and site photos supplement the descriptive text and should make understanding easier for the reader. Technical data and the application limits of deep foundation machinery round off the information needed for the planning of deep foundation works.
The Compendium Deep Foundation is the result of a collaboration of engineers and technicians from contractors and machinery manufacturers and is based on technical regulations, current construction processes and extensive practical experience. It is intended as an aid for planning and construction and should help pers, authorities, consultants and students to extend and round off their knowledge.
