Vibro floatation is commonly used to compact cohesionless soil, increasing its angle of internal friction, relative density and the elastic modulus of soil; thus increasing the shear strength.
A variation of vibro floatation method is to use gravel, which is then compacted to form stone columns. This method is utilised in soil with very low shear strength. In sandy soil conditions, vibro floatation and stone columns are ideal to prevent liquefaction in the event of earthquake.
