Stone column technology is well suited for the improvement of firm and soft soils (silts, sandy silts, loams, and non-homogeneous soils) as well as non-cohesive soils where enhanced properties are needed. Stone Columns are typically installed under the structures such as factories, warehouses, residential buildings, container terminals, road and rail embankments, etc.
Typical load that can be carried by a single stone column range from 200 to 300 kN. The columns are arranged in a square or triangular grid with a spacing ranging from 1.5 m to 3.0 m so that the soil replacement ratio is within the range from 10% to 30%.
