Guidelines for design and Installation of Soil-Cement Stabilization
David Druss

This paper furnishes general guidelines for design and installation of ground stabilization using soil-cement technologies. The methods of soil-cement production addressed herein include wet mixing, dry mixing and jet grouting. Design and installation factors which enter into the selection of the appropriate method are itemized and described. Design factors include the ability to achieve the required geometry, compatibility of the geology to the treatment method, practicality of obtaining the required engineering properties or performance, impacts of the installation process on concurrent construction activities, effects of the treated ground on subsequent construction activity, effects of ground treatment process on existing facilities, and the ability to verify compliance with performance criteria. Installation factors include cost, preparation of contract documents, quality control and assurance, and other construction-related elements.
