Vibro compaction by depth vibrator

The vibro compaction technique compacts granular soils, by rearrangement of the soil particles into a denser state. The depth vibrator is a horizontal oscillating cylindrical body. The core element...[more]

Dynamic Compaction with Rollers

Near-surface compaction plays an important role for the construction of various civil engineering structures such as dams and embankments for roads and railways. Dynamic roller compaction has...[more]

Base Improvement of Railroads

The objective of the research project was the development of a track-related system for the base and subbase improvement of railroads. In preparation of large-scale implementations the Institute of...[more]

Low Pressure Injections in Granular Soil

Permeation grouting is a method, which is used to improve the quality of granular soils with low effort of energy and resources. In this procedure a low viscosity grout (cement, ultrafine cement or...[more]
