The article describes the feasibility of using a stone-free drainage system for water depression in peaty soils. The purpose of the research is to develop economical and technological engineering solutions for drainage in peat soils. A specimen of a stone-free drainage system, including a perforated corrugated pipe 150 mm in diameter and expanded polysterene pellets as aggregate, was studied in laboratory conditions. Geotextile filters were wrapped around both the aggregate and the drain pipe. The drainage system specimen was subjected to a load equivalent to that applied by 1 to 4 m of backfilling sand. The study established high deformability of the drain pipe and the pelletized expanded polysterene aggregate, as well as a considerable decrease in the aggregate water permeability. Тhe burial depth of a typical stone-free drainage system shall be limited by 2.5 m. The article shows that the presence of clogging particles in drain water may lead to a considerable decrease in permeability of geotextile filters on drain pipes. The proposed design of stone-free drainage system in peaty soils ensures lower material consumption, cost, and workload. To reduce deformations of stone-free drainage system structural components, pipes and aggregate of non-yielding (stiff) materials shall be used.
