A study on the role of grouting in ground improvement
Vishal Arora, Dr. DK Soni
Cement grouting can be profitably used for strengthening foundation beds. The shear strength parameters, c & Ø, shows phenomenal increase when grouted with cement. The cement-water ratio of the grout act as a key parameter in the control of strength gain of sandy soils. The investigation on improvement of bearing capacity of sandy soils by grouting shows that there is considerable promise and scope for developing cement grouting as technique to improve foundation beds and their bearing capacity, especially in case of cohesionless soils.
