Biogeotechnics Webinar – 5 Little Known Keys For Successful Biogeotechnical Practice


Abstract The vast majority of infrastructure assets are constructed with or on unsuitable soils, which must be improved prior to, or after, construction. Conventional ground improvement technologies have historically relied on cement- and petroleum-based materials, perceived as straightforward commodities. This view can no longer be sustained due to the large volume and machine-intensive operations required, […]

2022 Eshbach Lecture “Tailor-made soil properties by biogeochemical means”

Technological Institute L211, Northwestern University, McCormick School of Engineering, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering

ABSTRACT: Among the non-conventional soil consolidation techniques, bio-mineralization has been a central focus of research for the past decade. At its core, Microbially Induced Calcium Carbonate Precipitation (MICP) is a multi-physical phenomenon, resulting in a natural CaCO3 bio-cement, capable of improving the mechanical properties of geomaterials. At the confluence of many disciplines, the technique is […]
