Abstract

The results of the team investigations which were carried out by Soviet and Finnish specialists on the consolidation and stabilization of weak water-saturated soils by using preloading, vertical drainage and deep stabilization by lime columns are the basis for the recommendations. The main part of the investigations has been performed in Finland, in Helsinki, alongside with the experience of subsoil consolidation and stabilization by vertical drainage and installation of lime stabilized columns, gained by Soviet and Finnish specialists when developing new territories for dwellings and industrial areas on weak water-saturated subsoils, while preparing these recommendations. Also the experience gained of the development of peat areas has been applied to this recommendations.
