Controlled Modulus Column was invented by Menard in 1990s as a cost effective alternative to piles. It increases the stiffness of the treated soil mass by allowing effective load sharing between the soils and the columns. The Controlled Modulus Column (CMC) construction process does not cause any damage to the surface nor produce any vibration impacting the surrounding environment. Several hundred linear meters of Controlled Modulus Column (CMC) with diameter ranging from 25 to 60 cm can be installed per shift. Normally, installation log is produced for each Controlled Modulus Column (CMC).
Stone Columns are made with various methods with the use of different equipment units depending on the depth and diameter of the columns and parameters of the soil to be improved. The popularity of this method resulted in its widespread use. The typical Stone Columns (SC) are formed by inserting an electrical or hydraulic vibroflot mounted on a base machine. Depending on the depth of the columns, the following units are used: an excavator (up to 7 m), a purpose-built rig (up to 20 m) or a crawler crane (up to 40 m).
