OMS Vibroflotation Probes
The Vibro-replacement method of constructing stone columns through fill material and weak soils to improve their load bearing and settlement characteristics provides an economic and technically sound solution to a wide range of geotechnical and foundation problems.
The Ozkanlar Vibroflot penetrates weak soils under action of vibrations and water jetting to form a cavity.
The vibrator is then extracted and a charge of stone is placed into the hole. The vibrator is then reintroduced into the hole and the stone is compacted, forced out, and tightly interlocked with the surrounding ground.
This process is then repeated, adding blocks of stone and then compacting with the Vibroflot. This results in the stone column being built up to ground level and improves the load bearing and settlement characteristics of the ground.
