Jet grouting is a ground improvement method used in construction to increase strength and reduce permeability of soil in-situ. The jet grout process involves injecting a high-velocity stream of cement grout in-situ into the soil under high pressure. The grout mixes with the soil, forming a cement-stabilized soil column. The resulting column enhances the ground's [...]
Deep soil mixing is a geotechnical method used in construction to improve the properties of soil. It involves the mechanical blending of in-situ soil with a cementitious binder to create a stronger and more stable ground to work on.
