Soil Improvement Techniques
Options for large-scale, in-place densification of granular soils include, on one hand, intensive proof-rolling, dynamic compaction, and other densification/compaction techniques. Post-construction settlement of soft, saturated silt and clay deposits, on the other hand, can be mitigated through preloading. For marginal sites, a combination of methods may be the best approach. Lightweight fills can also be used to actually offset structural loads and essentially “float” a building. GeoStructures has extensive experience in the design, testing, and monitoring of the following soil improvement methods:
- Intensive proof-rolling to deeply propagate compaction energy
- Ballast-stabilized footing excavations
- Compaction and low-mobility grouting
- Deep dynamic compaction
- Vibro-compaction and vibro-replacement
- Preloading and sand or wick drains
- Cellular concrete or geofoam
- Lightweight fill
