Why reinforce the soil with Geopier?

The compacted gravel piles reinforce the soil through four main mechanisms:

a) Soil matrix densification.

b) Increasing  lateral stresses in the matrix soil,

c) Drainage and pore pressure dissipation

d) The increase in the shear strength of the soil during a seismic event; which allows an increase of up to 30 times the carrying capacity of the soil and a reduction of up to 99% in the settlements.
