How do we treat the ground using #StoneColumns?
Like most ground improvement techniques, stone columns are used to reduce settlement and increase load-bearing capacity. They also accelerate soil consolidation as a result of the drainage capacity of the granular materials within the columns which act as pore water pressure evacuation points. Stone columns are particularly effective in improving slope stability and preventing liquefaction by increasing shear strength within the soil.
Stone columns help to limit the amount and consequences of future
liquefaction by :
- Densifying the soil through vibration and introducing stone into the soil
Reinforcing the soil to create a stiff composite soil mass.
