Our paper titled "Strengthening of Equipment Foundations on Loose Soils of a Power Plant in Eastern Uttar Pradesh" authored by Ravi Sundaram, Sanjay Gupta, Mohit Jhalani, Jitendra Kumar has been published by Springer Nature in Proceedings of the Indian Geotechnical Conference 2019 the Indian Geotechnical Conference 2019 Volume III (page nos. 523-533).
The paper describes problems encountered when small equipment foundations of a power plant placed on a 5–6 m thick poorly compacted fill underlain by rock experienced excessive settlements. Strengthening measures adopted included installing micro-piles extending to the top of rock and filling large voids in the fill with a thick grout of cement and sand. This highlights the importance of proper compaction as well as the need to test the bearing strata adequately before constructing foundations on fill.
