# BASIC DESIGN PARAMETERS (1) Stone Column Diameter (D) Due to lateral displacement of the stones during vibrator/ramming,

the completed diameter of the stone column is always greater than initial diameter of the hole. (in field diameter increase10-20% more)(Normally diameter range from 0.6 to 1 m)

(2) Pattern Stones columns should be installed preferably in an equilateral triangular which is the most dense packing, although a square pattern may also be used. A typical triangular and square pattern is shown in figure.

Mitchell (1985)

Mitchell (1985)

## (for stone column in a triangular pattern) normally spacing range from 1 to 2 m

(4) Equivalent diameter (De) The tributory area of the soil surrounding each stone column forms regular hexagon around the column. It may be approximated by an equivalent circular area having the same total area.

## De=1.05 S (for an equivalent triangular pattern)

De=1.13 S (for a square pattern)

(5) Replacement Ratio ( as) To quantify the amount of soil replaced by stone column, the term replacement ratio, as ,is used. Replacement ratio (as) is given by:

## (6) Stress concentration ratio (n)

s g

The value of n generally (IS 15284 (Part 1), 2003) lie between 2.5 to 5 at the ground surface.
