Performance prediction of prefabricated vertical drains beneath embankment on soft ground by finite element analysis

Preloading and prefabricated vertical drain (PVD) is a commonly employed ground improvement technique to expedite consolidation process by means of shortening the drainage path. Advancement in finite element method (FEM) analysis has enabled modeling of PVD in finite element program to acquire settl...
