Laboratory study on radial consolidation and deformation in clay reinforced with stone columns

Abstract: A series of laboratory tests was performed to study the deformation and radial consolidation around end-bearing (fully penetrating) stone columns. For this purpose, the behaviour of a horizontal slice of a unit cell representative of a column and the surrounding soil was analysed. The tests were carried out in a Rowe?Barden large oedometric cell that was instrumented to measure vertical stresses and pore pressures at several distances from the axis. Two column geometries were tested, with cell-to-column diameter ratios of N = 3 and 4. The most important findings of this work were the rate of pore pressure dissipation, the vertical strain reduction due to the presence of the column of approximately 25% for N = 4 and 35% for N = 3, and the load transfer to the column related to the stiffness ratio between the column and soil resulting in incremental stress concentration factors in the range 2.5 to 9.2. Results were compared with theoretical solutions that are commonly used for the study of stone column behaviour.
