A Study of Behaviour on Stone Column in Homogenous Soil

S. Sandhya Rani | P. Suresh Praveen Kumar


Abstract: In the modern civilized world ground improvement technique is a great concern to the geotechnical engineers. Stone columns are found effective, feasible and economical to improve the homogenous. Stone columns increase the unit weight and the bearing capacity of soil. It can densify the surrounding soil during construction. The improvement of a soil by stone columns is due to different sizes of aggregate or granular fill (size between 2 to 10 mm) in the soft soil. This deals with the utilization of stone column to improve the load carrying capacity of sandy silt soil with clay in naturally consolidated state. In the compression testing machine the load test are performed on single un-encased stone column in homogenous soil, the bearing carrying capacity of soil will increases with increase in diameter of stone column.
