Over the past year, use of jet grouting in the U.S. has nearly quadrupled. A versatile tool, it has performed well in settings as diverse as a railway tunnel, industrial waste site and a bulkhead wharf embattled by a river's eroding waters. Since Civil Engineering first began its coverage of jet grouting in the December 1986 issue (Jet Grouting: Snail's Pace of Adoption,) U.S. contractors are now using jet grouting more often not only for underpinning existing foundations, but also on a number of new construction projects. Article details use of jet grouting for tunneling, shoring, formation of tie-back anchors at building sites, cut-off walls, underpinning and repairs.
