Principle of Vibroflotation

The Vibroflotation ( Vibrocompaction ) is a method of improvement of the non-cohesive soils by re- arranging the grain distribution patter while applying cyclic vibrations which cause the outflow of the granular soil. The eccentric weight is driven by the hydraulic motor which generates the vibrating and oscillating motion of the vibroflot.

Vibroflotation utilizes horizontal vibrations in conjunction with fluid to reduce the interparticles friction of the surrounding soil. This allows the material to densify and creates a column with improved engineering characteristic, including and increase in strength and reduction in compressibility, transition from loose state to dense state of soil. This increase the relative density of the soil. This increases the relative density resulting in reduced settlement as well as improved resistance to liquefaction
