GROUND STABILIZATION: REVIEW OF GROUTING AND FREEZING TECHNIQUES FOR UNDERGROUND OPENINGS

The ground stabilization techniques of grouting and artificial freezing are reviewed. General grouting considerations are discussed including selection of grouts and techniques of injection. Materials for both particulate and chemical grouts are described along with their influence on ground properties and advantages and disadvantages. Artificial ground freezing is discussed in terms of techniques of freezing, strength-deformation and thermal considerations, and advantages and disadvantages. Selected case histories which illustrate the application of grouting and freezing to tunnel and shaft construction are briefly summarized.
