Wick drain projects have included dams, large storage areas, highway embankments, sedimentation ponds, tanks, bridge abutments, buildings, and airport runways.
The most common application of wick drains is for accelerating the settlement rate of compressible soils. At some sites, the primary purpose of wick drains is to increase the shear strength of underlying soft soils. As soil consolidates, the shear strength increases due to a reduction in the water content. This application is particularly important when high area fills have to be placed over soft soils with low shear strength. Potential instability problems can be overcome by loading the site in stages and allowing the soft soils to gain in strength under each stage before placement of the next stage of fill.
