IMPROVEMENT OF BEARING CAPACITY OF SANDY SOIL BY GROUTING

Beenish Jehan

Abstract


The structures constructed in the coastal belt requires deep foundation due to the existence of week soil which has poor Engineering properties. The soil profile about 3 to 4 meters deep, in these areas is mostly loose sand which are then underlain by clayey soil. The structures constructed here suffer excessive settlement. In this paper the bearing capacity of soil is improved in order to reduce settlement and this done by grouting. Ordinary Portland cement is used. It was found that shear strength of the grouted sand increases with the increase in cement quantity also it is found from results that 4%cement grout is effective as compared to 2% and 6% of grout.

Index Terms—Enter Cement, Grouting, Ground Improvement, Sandy soil.
