Compaction grouting is a soil modification process that uses dynamic displacement to solidify soft or loose soils, ultimately preventing or repairing sinkholes.
This process begins with drilling an injection rod into the ground to be treated and then injecting a stiff aggregate-based grout under controlled pressures and volumes in measured lifts in order to achieve the densified soil mass. Engineered Solutions of Georgia has used compaction grouting in many situations from pre-stabilizing soils for construction to soil stabilization of settling structures, lifting of large structures, to remediation of true Karst sinkhole repair and man-made trash-pits.
Compaction grouting requires coordination and a plan in order to be successful at this process. Soil type, grout type and consistency, and equipment capabilities are the biggest fundamentals to being successful at this process. ESOG has the experience and engineering capability to design a compaction grouting program for any project.
