About The Event
Controlled Modulus Columns (CMC) are rigid inclusions that are meant to reinforce compressible soils under the conventional structural foundations or embankments in order to provide increased bearing capacity and control settlement. MENARD invented the CMC solution about 30 years ago and since then has gained extensive experience worldwide. Over time, MENARD has been able to develop and improve internal design capabilities and establish design and construction standards for CMC.
CMC are typically designed in variable size and pattern to provide support all types of structures such as buildings, warehouses, plants, bridges, embankments, dikes, tanks or silos storage and marine structures. This Menard’s Talk will focus on CMC global behavior and introduce design basics for CMC application for buildings, tanks and embankments structures, supported by examples of previous projects in the Prairies.
