The seabed along the shore lines of these regions is typically thick marine sediments. The hydraulic fill used for land reclamation is often dredged form the seabed. In the ground improvement , the most important thing is settlement estimation. Construction period, costs and stability of structure are influenced by settlement estimate result. But, to foreign case as well as domestic specially, in the case of dredging reclamation The error is happening fairly greatly between predicted and measured settlement. Serviceability limit states are controlled by the deformations that structure can undergo. This aspect involves a correct design of foundations to ensure that the supported structure fulfills it functions. This paper deals with the prediction of settlement of soft ground. An analysis of some currently used methods to estimate settlements is presented.
