Soft soils present particular challenges to engineers and an understanding of the specific characteristics of these soils is indispensable. A collection of papers from the Fourth International Conference on Soft Soil Engineering, Vancouver, 2006, this book covers laboratory techniques such as numerical modelling, theoretical analysis and constitutive modelling, which give new insights into soft soil material behavior. It discusses how large-scale testing in the field is providing important information in areas such as slope stability and soft soil improvements. Brinkgreve, R. B. J., and Vermeer, P.
