Ground Improvement Monitoring and Testing
YPC Consulting Group, P.L. offers monitoring and testing services for ground improvement techniques such as vibroreplacement and vibroflotation. Services include:
- Monitoring vibroreplacment or vibroflotation operations designed to achieve ground improvement prior to construction of conventional shallow foundation systems. This consists of inserting a large vibrating probe into the ground, and replacing lost soil volume resulting from consolidation with either sand (vibroflotation) or stone columns (vibroreplacement).
- Post-improvement verification testing using the piezocone penetration test method, in order to verify that the anticipated level of improvement has been attained.
