Land Reclamation Using Calcium Oxide (CaO) Improved Soil in Japan

An increase in the quantity of dredged material combined with a decrease in available land for disposal has led to extensive research for unusual ways to improve and use the dredged soil.

Estimating the Immeasurable: Soil Properties
Estimating the Immeasurable: Soil Properties

This IADC Award-winning paper tackles the problem that knowledge of soil properties is essential for an efficient excavation process, but measurement equipment is complex and expensive. Estimation methods using simulators may be the solution.
