Vibro concrete columns - an alternative technique to piled foundation for building structures
Mario J. Pototschnik

The Vibro Concrete Column technique is a deep foundation system based on the displacement technology developed by Keller in the 1930ís. This displacement technology which is employed for producing the bore hole and the toe for a pile-like substructure has the great advantage of high flexibility in production parameters and of very low creation of spoil compared to traditional piling systems. The construction process, design criteria and testing methods are discussed in this paper.
