Grouting of soils and foundation

Treatment of soil with a binding agent (lime, cement, cementitious road binder) consists of incorporating this binder into the soil, possibly with the addition water, and mixing more or less intimately, generally in situ, until obtaining a material which is homogeneous enough to possess new properties. This technique uses the chemical similarities of the soil and the binder, as opposed to a mechanical treatment only, such as compaction.
Selection of the best ground improvement technique for any project requires a wide range of knowledge, experience and skill in an array of ground improvement approaches. Subsurface conditions can vary greatly within a single job site and the characteristics of the in situ soil play a crucial role in determining which ground improvement method is best.
