Vibro Compaction is a ground improvement technique used in granular and cohesionless soils such as loose sands, gravels and hydraulic fills. With the insertion of vibrator into soils along with water jets, a localized liquefaction is created which allows soil particles to re-arrange in a more denser state due to induces vibrations of the depth vibrator. This technique is quite effective even for grater depths.
Vibro Compaction increases the bearing capacity of soils, reduce total & differential settlement and mitigate the risk of liquefaction during earthquakes.
