NEW DEVELOPMENTS IN PERMEATION GROUTING: DESIGN AND EVALUATION

This article discusses 2 recent developments in the field of professional soil-grouting operations. The first is an In-Situ Soil Injection Simulator (ISIS) for use during the design phase of soil-grouting programs, and the second is a Computer-Aided Grouting Evaluation System (CAGES) for use during the execution phase of a permeation grouting program. Data obtained from the ISIS tests can be used to understand the injectability of the specific soils to be grouted, to select the best grout types and formulations for these soils, and to determine the most appropriate injection parameters. The use of programs such as CAGES allows for real-time optimization of the grout formulation to the response of the formation, and multiple-hole grouting.
