Proceedings of a symposium on soil behavior and soft ground construction in honor of Charles C. Ladd, held in Boston, Massachusetts, October 5-6, 2001. Sponsored by the Geo-Institute of ASCE.
This collection contains 12 papers on soil behavior and soft ground construction. Papers cover fundamental areas of soft ground mechanical behavior, geochemistry, and links between the two. In addition, several papers describe the state-of-the-practice, historical overviews, and case studies about soft ground construction.
- soil physics and chemistry,
- mechanical properties,
- in situ measurement, and
- engineering applications.
The papers in this volume honor and celebrate the career of Charles C. "Chuck" Ladd, a professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Professor Ladd has made his mark in engineering by influencing the understanding of difficult soils and the ability to engineer them.
