Centrifuge tests were carried out to model double porosity
clay landfills in the Czech Republic. Ground improvement, in the form of
sand compaction piles, was applied in-flight to partially consolidated soil
models. Foundation tests were carried out to compare the soil stiffness and it
was shown that this method of ground improvement can increase foundation
resistance by up to a factor of 3.
