"abstract": "<p>Ground improvement has become one of the most effective tools of geotechnical engineering, being<br>\nadopted for an always larger variety of civil engineering applications. To reduce the role of<br>\nsubjective choices of operators, the use of different techniques tends to be codified by specific<br>\nguidelines. In the European Union there is an ongoing effort to standardize execution and design<br>\nwithin codes continuously reviewed by designated committees. A widespread and systematic<br>\nstandardisation on the ground improvement as a mean to mitigate the effects of liquefaction on<br>\nbuildings and infrastructures is missing. The paper presents and overview of traditional and new<br>\nground improvement technologies suitable for this application. The methods are firstly classified by<br>\nconsidering their effects on the ground (e.g. densification, stabilization, drainage, desaturation,<br>\netc.). Design principles are then outlined for new or pre-existing buildings and infrastructures,<br>\nconsidering the ongoing review process of the design Eurocodes.</p>",
