Sand Compaction Pile - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

The constrained column-to-soil modular ratio varies in the range of 10–50, although the lateral expansion of the column (bulging) reduces the parameter n s significantly, sometimes as low as 5, due to plastic strains (Castro and Sagaseta, 2009). Mitchell (1981) reported the range of the value of n s as 2–6 based on field studies, while Han and Ye (2002) pointed out the typical value of n s ...

Ground Improvement Methods Using Column-Type

Types of Stone Column Construction Vibro-Replacement (Wet Top Feed) (i.e. Vibroflotation) Stone column construction using water flush. Refers to the wet, top feed process in which jetting water is used to aid the penetration of the ground by the vibrator. Due to the jetting action, part of the in-situ soil is washed to the surface. This soil is then replaced by the backfill material.

Vibro Compaction has a diminished effectiveness if sand has fines content between 10% and 15% and definitively is not applicable if fines content exceeds 15%, unless combined with other G.I. approaches. For Stone Columns, in very soft clays with undrained shear strength of 20 kPa, stone columns cannot be applied due to the lack of lateral support.
