Consolidation with geodrains.

Reinforcement of soft soils: Consolidation with geodrains.

Currently, the best cost-benefit solution is the association of StrataGrid geogrids with geodrains, a system that acts both by preventing the landfill rupture with the StrataGrid reinforcement and accelerating and minimizing the consolidation settlements that will occur throughout the life of the work.

The geodrains are driven with a pre-defined mesh and depth in order to accelerate   most of the settlements by consolidation in just a few months.


StrataGrid® UX HS or BX geogrids, manufactured in compliance with a strict quality control, which results in a material with physical, chemical and mechanical properties that meet the strictest international requirements, are applied on layers of soil with low resistance, promoting the its immediate reinforcement e  eliminating the need for large removals and replacements.


The combination of reinforcement and settlement acceleration techniques makes it possible to raise the level of overload, accelerating settlement and keeping the work at a necessary safety level.

Acting on both sides of the scale: The use of StrataGrid geogrids in embankment bases on soft soils reinforces the embankment acting in two different ways: reducing the stress on the foundation, by absorbing the horizontal stresses coming from the embankment slope; and increasing the strength of the foundation by restricting lateral deformations. With both mechanisms acting simultaneously, StrataGrid geogrids allow for higher embankment to be executed with higher safety.


Taking a shortcut: The geodrains embedded in a mesh of the order of 1.5 m significantly reduce the distances necessary for the expulsion of water in the soft soil layer, bringing the deadlines for the occurrence of a significant portion of the settlement from years to a few months.
