Paper Title:
Numerical Analysis of the Second Composite Ground
  Abstract

The behavior of a foundation built on normally consolidated soft soil reinforced with stone columns (SC) and deep mixing columns (DMC) is studied using a finite element analysis program, Phase2D. The numerical predictions are analyzed in terms of absolute vertical displacement, absolute horizontal displacement, mean stresses, volumetric strain, maximum shear strain and strength reduction factor. Firstly, the effectiveness of the use of stone columns, the first composite ground, is studied. Afterwards, because load bearing capacity is less than 160 kPa designed, the effectiveness analysis reinforced with DMC, the second composite ground, is performed to study the influence on the soil-columns system of the foundation and columns.
