Used to repair structures that have excessive settlementPowerPoint Presentation: Grouting methods Jet grouting Developed in Japan Uses a special pipe with horizontal jets that inject grout into the ground at high pressures Jet grouting is an erosion/replacement system that creates an engineered, in situ soil/cement product known as Soil cretesm . Effective across the widest range of soil types, and capable of being performed around subsurface obstructions and in confined spaces, jet grouting is a versatile and valuable tool for soft soil stabilization, underpinning, excavation support and groundwater controlPowerPoint Presentation: Stabilization using admixtures The soil stabilization means the improvement of stability or bearing power of the soil by the use of controlled compaction, proportioning and/or the addition of suitable admixture or stabilizersTypes of soil stabilization: Cement stabilization Bituminous stabilization Types of soil stabilizationCement stabilization: C ement stabilizationBituminous stabilization : Bituminous stabilizationPowerPoint Presentation: Cement stabilization Admixture used is portland cement. It gives good degree of stabilization. This is used for all types of soils except clayey soil. Bituminous materials like asphalt is used. It increases soil impermeability. This is used for dry soil. Bituminous stabilizationPowerPoint Presentation: Reinforcement • Soil is stronger in compression than in tension •To improve strength in tension, geosynthetics placed in soil for soil reinforcementPowerPoint Presentation: ReinforcementThank you!: Thank you!
