The Geomix® process is used to form soil/cement barrettes in a single bite.
Continuous walls can be created by a succession of overlapping bites, built following a primary secondary sequence.
Used without structural reinforcement, the resulting walls can form low permeability barriers or be used for ground improvement purposes, such as slope stabilisation and liquefaction mitigation.
Temporary or permanent retaining walls can be created when combined with structural reinforcement, usually in the form of metal profiles incorporated into the mix.
As with a Hydrofraise® wall, the wall thickness corresponds to the width of the drums used to create it: these range from 500 mm to 1,200 mm.
