Abstract

This paper briefly reports the recent largest jet grouting applications in Turkey. The main emphasis is given to selection of the jet grouting technique and the quality control tests carried out during jet grout installations. The paper also describes application types and details of the operational parameters such as injection pressure, number and size of nozzles, lifting and rotation speeds, etc. In all applications, jet grout columns were employed in order to control and limit excessive settlement of the foundations and in some to reduce the risk of liquefaction.
