Provides a unique solution to a variety of problems associated with poor soil conditions. This is accomplished by incorporating existing poor soils (low-bearing soils) into a cellular soil cement mixture, without overloading lower bearing soils, avoiding future settlement. The process eliminates the expensive and time consuming use of imported soils, while the unique cell structure renders expansive clays resistant to freeze-thaw cycles. The flowable nature eliminates the compaction procedures for conventional fill and, promotes easy placement directly from mixers or remote pumping locations in limited access areas. Soil stabilization with A-100 cellular concrete materials can be applied to slopes, retaining walls, bridge pier and pile sub-bases, roadway and railroad sub-bases and poor soils adjacent to building foundations.
Health and safety hazards can be posed by unused underground storage tanks for holding petroleum fuels and chemicals. Other underground structures such as silos, pipelines, storm sewers and tunnels are sometimes left in place after use has been discontinued. When removal is impractical or too costly, Goodcell provides an exceptional, cost effective, environmentally safe solution for in-situ abandonment or slipline alternative for these structures. Low strength mixes of locally available materials can be formulated and pumped into a tank or other underground room to provide complete filling, generally from one location.
Serves the construction and geotechnical industries as a flowable fill where high strength is undesirable. Low density and extremely flowable characteristics may be employed for void backfilling under and/or around structures to prevent settlement related failures. Representative flowable fill applications include utility trench backfilling, voids around foundations and structural supports, dam and naturally occurring solution cavities, and voids under concrete slabs.
A-100 can be used to create a lower density concrete building material for construction of walls, blocks and other panels. These panels result in lower transportation costs, reduced loads on structural members and are more energy efficient, and have higher acoustic and thermal insulating characteristics than typical concrete products.
Slab construction with low density, self-leveling concrete provides a material that induces smaller loads on structural members than conventional floor and roof deck systems, and can reduce overall building costs.
A-100 cellular mixes are versatile. Placement into pre-constructed forms is easily accomplished due to the characteristic flowability, creating cost effective, energy efficient, low maintenance structures. Mixes can be designed for lower or higher strengths, depending on structural requirements and can even incorporate waste materials such as fly ash.
