This article reviews briefly the use of slurries in foundation construction and civil engineering works. The following four types of walls or ground support systems are described: underground structural walls; prefab diaphragm walls; trench cutoff walls; and bored pile walls. These walls are used for underpinning, where retaining walls are needed in deep excavations, for seepage and groundwater control, as load bearing elements in deep foundations, and where it is desired to minimize ground movement.
