Formatted abstract

The thesis doing was related to the ground improvement method using jet grouting. Ground improvement refers all techniques employed in the engineering of soil to achieve the desired properties. Jet grouting is a procedure of mix-in-place, which involves the controlled erosion of soil particles using high-pressured erosive jets of grout or water to form a treated mass. Interlocking of these individual elements are used to form jet grouted structures to achieve the desired stability or permeability. Jet grouting can be applied almost to all range of soil. It is can also be use to treat stratified soil. Simple cementitious grouts are used exclusively in jet grouting. Bentonite and other form of admixture are sometimes added to improve properties. Jet grouting has been widely used in several fields of civil engineering, which includes earth retaining and foundation works, slope stabilisation, ground water control, waste deposits sealing, tunneling and underpinning of buildings. Case studies of jet grouting projects in New Haven by underpinning and stabilisation of soil below the railway embankment in Italy have been involved.
