    One of the legacies of the past in industrialized countries is that land has been contaminated due to mining, industry and society disposing of waste with little regard for future consequences. Contamination of the soil layers forms one of the major topics of Environmental Geo-technology. The accidental spillage or leakage of highly aggressive industrial effluents has detrimental effects on the properties of soil. The addition of these effluents in to the subsoil directly affects the use and stability of the supported structure. In the present day Geotechnical engineering, little consideration has been given to the potential influence of physico-chemical interactions on the mechanical performance of soil confronted with increasing occurrence of soil contamination. The modern construction requires a detailed study of the foundation material as well as its working during the course of l.. Read More»
