Geotextile Encased Columns

Geotextile Encased Columns (GEC) is form of sleeves made of high strength woven geotextile which are manufactured seamless. GEC can be filled with sand, gravel or split. GEC used on very soft ground, where soil improvement can't be done conventionally.

GEC is the development of stone column. Its main function is to transfer the embankment load through the soft soil to a firm stratum. GEC also can act as vertical drains, so it can reduce the time of consolidation.


STRENGTHS:
  • Can be applied on the very soft ground, Cu ≤ 15 kN/m2
  • Practical and easy to installed
  • Accelerated construction time

APPLICATIONS:
  • Soft soil Improvement 
  • Embankment
