Compensation Grouting to Reduce Settlement of Buildings During an Adjacent Deep Excavation
Jinyuan Liu

Compensation grouting used to protect seven masonry buildings near deep excavation in Shanghai, China is presented in this paper. Grout was injected between the diaphragm wall and the buildings to compensate for ground loss and stress relief caused by the excavation. The design and construction of compensation grouting during adjacent deep excavation are detailed. This project demonstrates that compensation grouting is a cost-effective and promising method to protect properties near deep excavations in soft clay.
