Soil improvement

Natural surface massives cannot be compacted in layers. Compaction must span through many metres in depth. Many methods and means are used to achieve the given aim:

  • Soil deep and mass stabilisation through adding binder (and soil)
  • Deep compaction (dynamic consolidation using heavy rammers, explosives, soil compaction through deep vibration or by constructing vibro piles)
  • Compaction with a static load (pre- and overloading, speeding consolidation by installing vertical drainage)
  • Gravel and stone pile construction
  • Soil injection
  • Electro-chemical stabilisation
  • Thermoprocessing (freezing / heating)
  • Geosynthetic reinforcement
