CeTeau Vacuum Consolidation

  • Download BrochureCeTeau CellCeTeau CellCeTeau CellCeTeau CellCeTeau CellCeTeau CellCeTeau CellCeTeau CellThe innovative CeTeau Vacuo is designed to accelerate the consolidation for soft and very soft saturated fine- grained soils.

    The system consists of installing prefabricated vertical drains, individually connected below the surface to vacuum transmission pipes. These pipes are than connected at surface level to a horizontal tubing system by means of specially developed airtight T-couplings. The so-called drainage screens, a row of vertical drains that are connected at the top to a horizontal line, are brought outside the surcharge (if any) and connected to a combined vacuum air pump that has been developed in-house.

    The advantage of this method over the traditional sealing by geo-membrane is that leaks are fully traceable even after surcharge loading.

    This loading process creates an accelerated isotropic consolidation in the soil mass in a relatively short time, eliminating the need for long-term and potentially unstable surcharge loads. The system is applicable in under the following conditions; Stability problems, No space for shallow slopes or berms, minimal allowable deformation of subsoil ( close to buildings) or Short construction time available.

Advantages of the CeTeau Vacuum Consolidation System

• A very short installation period

• Significant time reduction compared with other consolidation methods

• No liner required

• Flexible configuration due to the absence of a liner

• No border trench required, which could cause instability or horizontal deformation.

• Isotropic consolidation reduces the risk of failure under additional loading

• No risk of slope instability beyond boundaries

• Controlled rate and magnitude of loading and settlement

• Reduction in surcharge fill transportation

• No connection with underlying aquifers

• Separation of intermediate sand lenses possible

• Horizontal deformation during filling is avoided

• Large reduction in secondary settlements
