Abstract

This chapter is a collection of in situ applications of electro-osmosis in soil improvement as reported in the literature over past decades. The selection criteria are

1. It must be an in situ field trial with the purpose of improving soil engineering properties (strength, deformation, chemical composition, etc.),

2. It must include detailed documentation of engineering properties of the site, configuration of the test layout, monitoring records and evaluations of performance and energy consumption.

The scientific principles of electrokinetics in porous ...
