Dry Soil Mixing and Vibro Replacement in Combination for a High Embankment

A highway between Stockholm and Nynäshamn in Sweden was constructed in a geologically sensitive area with large deposits of highly compressible clay and organic soils overlaying large deposits of silt and sand resting on bedrock. A mixed ground improvement solution, using Vibro Replacement and Dry Soil Mixing for a 7-10 m high embankment, was designed and executed. The alternative design provided both technical and production advantages to the project. This paper presents the design and execution tasks that arose during the project due to the mixing of the two different ground improvement techniques. The used design method is presented together with the monitoring results of settlements as well as the results from field tests and field trials.
