Grout Efficiency of Lifting Structure in Soft Clay

An inclined eight-story reinforced concrete building on a thick soft clay deposit was leveled by compensation grouting with short gel time grout injected through sleeved pipes. The monitoring system is used to record the injected grout volume, the mat foundation's heaved volume after grouting, and the mat foundation's settled volume during pore pressure dissipation. The grouting efficiencies improved from negative value to less than one, and the stress histories of clay soils changed from normally consolidated to over-consolidated. A final compensation efficiency of 9.78% was achieved and the building was successfully leveled.
