Abstract In this paper, field behaviors of two trial embankments in Australia are presented. The first case study has a trial embankment which is approximately 90m in length and 40m in width, and has two sections with vertical drain installed, and a no drains section. The second case study gives detail of a trial embankment with stone column, and incorporated 3 separate sections (2 sections with stone columns, and a section without stone column), and is constructed on soft estuarine clay with high sensitivity. The trial embankments were constructed to evaluate the effectiveness of ground improvement techniques on the soft clays in this region. This paper interprets the findings obtained from the field observations during the construction phase.
