A Brief History of Jet Grouting in the Last 50 Years: The Story of Its Evolution
Jet grouting, a grouting soil improvement construction technique, was first developed in Japan in the 1960s and 1970s, and then introduced in Europe a few years later in the form of a proposal for soil...

Site Constraints Complicate a Bulkhead Replacement: It Takes a Team to Overcome the Challenges
North American Aggregates (NAA), a leading supplier of aggregates in the New York area, recently constructed a new processing facility in Perth Amboy, NJ. One of the final components of the new facility...

Challenges and Risks of Jet Grouting in a Congested Urban Environment
In the heart of London, one of Europe's largest jet grouting contracts is nearing completion. The jet grouting is part of the overall 7-year-long upgrade project to London...

Sinkhole Investigation and Grouting: Novel Recommendations for a Pipeline Right-of-Way
In 2009, numerous sinkholes developed within and adjacent to a 400-ft-long section of high-pressure, petroleum pipeline right-of-way that crosses under a local creek in Plymouth Meeting,...

Development and Field Testing of a Pressure-Sensing Grout Packer

Grouting Methods
This chapter discusses common grouting methods used in underground applications in both soil and rock. Jet, compaction, permeation, and hydrofracture grouting methods are frequently used...

Geotechnical Considerations in Grouting Program Planning
This chapter explores geotechnical considerations in grouting program planning. Topics include: basic considerations; geotechnical investigation and geotechnical design summary; grouting...

Grouting Materials
This chapter explores the materials used for underground grouting. The basic materials used to produce grouts for underground use are the same as those used in aboveground applications....

Grout Hole Layout
The drilling method, either rotary or percussion, and the type and size of the drills to be used are selected based on such factors as rock type, depth of holes required, working space...

Grout Placement Operations
This chapter discusses grout placement operations. The procedures for drilling, proportioning and mixing, and injection used in underground grouting are basically the same as those employed...

Chemical Grouting
Chemical grouting is used in underground construction primarily on soft-ground shafts and tunnels in an effort to control cohesionless or running ground conditions by modifying the soil....
