Geotextile encased columns are columns of granular material are confined within high-strength geotextile fabric to increase bearing capacity and provide vertical support in extremely soft soils.
Earthquake (EQ) drains are used to mitigate/limit the effects of seismically-induced liquefaction by allowing for the rapid dissipation of excess porewater pressures generated by seismic events.
Menard Vacuum™ Consolidationadmin75082022-10-25T02:17:46+02:00
Menard Vacuum™ is used to accelerate consolidation of cohesive, highly compressible soils. The process consists in creating a negative pressure under an airtight membrane laid over the soil, which generates atmospheric pressure on the soil, equivalent to the pressure exerted by a 4 metre embankment.
Wick drains, also known as pre-fabricated vertical drains, are a cost-effective solution for accelerating the consolidation of fine-grained soils to expedite construction and limit long-term settlement.
