Improving Deep-Seated Soft Clays Using Super-jet Grouting
H. Senapathy, J.R. Davie, D. Boehm

Subsurface conditions at a power plant in Texas showed an area of soft clay under portions of two major structures that would lead to unacceptable differential settlement due to consolidation. Instead of supporting the structures on pile foundations, super-jet grouting was used to stiffen the soft clay layer. This foundation option resulted in substantial savings and cut the construction schedule by about 2 weeks.
