Abstract: The traditional use of compaction grouting has been to arrest settlement of existing structures, and occasionally to raise them back to their original grades. Recently, the process has been used as an integral part in new construction, around or above existing construction. This paper deals with some of these new uses, and illustrates the use of compaction piles in compression, in tension as earth anchors, and as piles to pick up bending stress in support of open excavations. This paper explains the approach to the calculations, and uses seven case descriptions to illustrate the various special aspects involved.
