Grouting is the injection of pumpable


materials into a soil or rock formation to
change the physical characteristics of the
formation. with the aim to increase
resistance against deformation, to supply
cohesion, shear-strength and uniaxial
compressive strength or finally to reduce
conductivity and interconnected porosity
in an aquifer. Grouting for ground
engineering can be subdivided into:
permeation grouting, compaction grouting,
hydro fracture grouting, jet grouting, rock
grouting and compensation grouting and

Injection and Grouting Methods
Permeation grouting
This method describes the process of
filling joints or fractures in rock or pore
spaces in soil with a grout without
disturbing the formation. More
specifically, permeation grouting refers to
the replacement of water in voids between
soil particles with a grout fluid at low
injection pressure so as to prevent
fracturing .It is a technique that is
generally used to reduce ground
permeability and control ground water
flow, but it also can be used to strengthen
and stiffen the ground

Hydro fracture grouting


Hydro fracture grouting is the deliberate Rock grouting is the filling or partly filling

using grout under pressure. Typically it is joints in a rock mass with grouts without

Sweden and Finland, deep stabilization
techniques are quite popularly used for
stabilization of soft soil (Ahenberg et al,
1995).
These methods have been
suggested and applied for soil and rock
stabilizing, slope stability, liquefaction
mitigation, vibration reduction(along the
railway), road and railroad and bridge
foundations and embankments,
construction of excavation support systems
or protection of structure close to
excavation sites, solidification and
stabilization of contaminated soils etc.
The main advantage of these
methods is long term increasing in strength
especially for some of the binders used.
Pozzolanic reaction can continue for
months or even years after mixing,
resulting in the increase in strength of
cement stabilized clay with the increase in
curing time

administration has suggested that these
techniques can be classified based on II) Dual phase (grout + air injection).
1.c Method of additive injection (i.e.,
wet or dry injection).
2.c Method by which additive is mixed
(i.e. rotary/ mechanical energy or
by high pressure jet).
3.c The location of the mixing tool (i.e.
near the end of the drilling rods or
along a portion of the drilling
rods).
According to most researches,
there are four basic jet grouting systems
which are widely used nowadays and they
are
I) Single phase (grout injection only).

III) Triple phase (water + air injection and


followed by grout injection).
IV) Super Jet Grouting (air injection + DSM (Deep Soil Mixing) and JGS (Jet

Conclusion
1. The Deep Mixing Methods (DMM)
which are applied to stabilize and improve
soils are increasingly spreading and have
been accepted world-wide as a soil
improvement method.
2. It is based on mixing binders (such as
cement, lime and other additives) with the
soil, using rotating mixing tools or jetting
simultaneously in order to form columns
of a hardening material since pozzolanic
reactions between the binder and the soil
grains are developed.
3. These methods have been suggested and
applied for soil and rock stabilizing, slope
stability, liquefaction mitigation, vibration
reduction (along the railway), road and
railroad and bridge foundations and
embankments, construction of excavation
support systems or protection of structure
close to excavation sites, solidification and
stabilization of contaminated soils,
remedial grout injection of building, etc.
4. The choice of which Deep Soil Mixing
Methods is the best to use depends on
various factors like: the soil type, project
conditions and its place or location,
importance of project, economical and
time issues, environmental conditions, etc.
Designers are expected to solve problems
more easily should the advantages and the
main points of each DMM method
