HANDBOOK FOR RAILROAD TRACK STABILIZATION USING LIME SLURRY PRESSURE INJECTION

This handbook includes chapters dealing with the technology of line injection, surface and subsurface soil exploration and laboratory testing, environmental considerations and safety precautions. In addition, there are appendices which provides state-of-the-art specifications for lime slurry injection and laboratory soil testing procedures. A lime slurry section gives a complete description of the present state-of-the-art of Lime Slurry Pressure Injection (LSPI).
