The consolidation time in relation with the hydraulic conductivity of the soil will determine the optimum spacing for PVD installation. The typical installation distance between PVD points is 1.0 to 1.5 meter. The installation pattern can be in square or triangular patterns, but triangular patterns are more effective. For a quick calculation of the total length of PVD required, use the CeTeau PVD Calculator.
To easily calculate the total number of PVD points and total quantity of PVD required for different installation patterns, PVD spacing and installation depth, use the PVD calculator below.
