Identifying problematic soil layers in Surfers Paradise, Australia
MetadataShow full item record
Peat is a highly compressible soil. Surfers Paradise has a peat layer with different thickness at different locations. Buildings in the area are using pile foundations to avoid the peat layer. 35 locations in Surfers Paradise have investigated. Peat locations have been determined within the study area and thickness in each location has been identified. In-situ and laboratory tests results have been obtained for the soil within the study area. The variation of these properties has been plotted and examined. The peat behaviours in Surfers Paradise are assessed and concluding remarks are drawn.
