DEVELOPMENT OF DESIGN PROCEDURES FOR STABILIZED SOIL SUPPORT SYSTEMS FOR SOFT GROUND TUNNELING. VOLUME I. A REPORT ON THE PRACTICE OF CHEMICAL STABILIZATION AROUND SOFT GROUND TUNNELS IN ENGLAND, FRANCE AND GERMANY

This is the first volume of a series of three reports which will describe the results of a research project on the development of a design procedure for soil stabilization systems for support of the ground around shallow tunnels. This volume presents documentation on existing stabilization technology as practiced in England, France and Germany. The specific purposes of the visit were: observe large scale tunnel grouting operations, define differences in grouting operations in various countries, document the reasons why chemical grouting is used, develop general guidelines about costs of grouting operations, examine types of specifications and quality control measures used, and discuss ongoing research of behavior of chemically stabilized soils. Further, research into chemical grouting is underway at several institutes in Europe but not in the United States, and it was felt that valuable experience could be gained by discussions with European researchers.
