  • The Premixing Methodby Coastal Development Institute Tokyo

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 115.95

    The premixing method involves adding a small amount of cement to the soil used in reclamation. The cement reacts with the water in the soil to produce a stronger, non-liquifying material for construction. The premixing method can therefore reduce construction time, as the counter-measure work is carried out simultaneously with the reclamation... more...
