CHEMICAL GROUTING FOR PARIS RAPID TRANSIT TUNNELS

Special problems in the construction of subsurface structures for a new rapid transit railroad line in Paris, France. Consolidation of soils was provided by chemical grouting. Grouting technique was also used to consolidate the foundations of a bridge, over the tunnel. Silicate and resin grouting provided the consolidation without recourse to compressed air or dewatering. A classification of modern chemical grouts is given with their limits of injectability. Elaborate grouting procedures prove their efficiency in supplementing or replacing modern tunneling methods.
