QLD Shotcrete are the soil stabilisation experts for any residential, civil or commercial project in South East Queensland.
What is Soil Stabilisation?
Any method of changing the soil structure to meet an engineering purpose, which helps prevent soil erosion and assists with drainage solutions.
Processes and Methods
One of the oldest and proven methods of soil stabilisation is mechanical stabilisation. Mechanical methods include physically adding building materials to the soil in order to alter its gradation and solidity.
Soil Stabilisation can also be achieved by the addition of different structural elements and procedures such as:
- Rock and Soil nails
- Ground anchors
- Self drilling Anchors
- Temporary or Permanent rock and soil nails
- Grass roots matting
- Mac matting
These all help increase the strength of the material being built upon.
Factors affecting the mechanical stability of the soil include:
- Strength and contents of the constituent materials
- The amount of materials and gradation in the mix
- The current percentage of soil binding
- The mixing, rolling, and compaction processes being used
- Environmental conditions
The Benefits of Soil Stabilisation
- Accelerates the construction process
- Strengthening – where soil structure is poor
- Prevents soil erosion
- Reduces the need for expensive surface treatments
- Reduces the need to transport additional soil materials to the site
- Mechanical methods are cheaper than other procedures
