GROUTING IN SOILS VOLUME 2: DESIGN AND OPERATIONS MANUAL

This manual provides guidelines for the design and conduct of soil grouting operations, from the selection of the grout and the design of the injection pattern to construction control methods and evaluation of the completed treatment. This report empasizes grouting applications associated with excavation and tunneling in an urban environment. It describes the three general grouting techniques - permeation, void filling, and compaction - and covers in detail, six applications: (1) groundwater control, (2) sand stabilization, (3) soil strengthening, (4) backpacking tunnel liners, (5) leak repairs, and (6) tieback anchorages. A companion report, Volume 1 (FHWA-RD-76-26) is entitled "A State-of-the-Art Report."
