Overview

The purpose of this presentation will include findings from forensic investigations into cases of differential settlements and failures; and solutions to some of these challenges are provided.

Summary

Soft compressible alluvial clays are found in the coastal belt of Malaysia, particularly in the West Coast of Peninsular Malaysia and Sarawak. Some of the challenges faced by development over this formation include differential settlement of roads, highways, railways and building platforms. Serious issues such as failures of bridge approaches and deep excavations may occur if these soft compressible alluvial clays are not properly dealt with.
