Deep soil mixing (DSM) for ground improvement, excavation walls and water cutoff barriers involves mechanically mixing soil in situ with a binder to create a stiffer, stronger, and less permeable material referred to as soilcrete. The technique has been used in the US for over 30 years and has seen significant advancements and usage in the last decade with the development of robust QA/QC programs and with the advent of data acquisition systems and computer-controlled mixing systems. This course will provide an overview of these as well as sample case histories to illustrate their use.
Keller North America provides a wide range of geotechnical engineering and construction services to improve soils in-place and to both construct new and rehabilitate foundations. The techniques that will be discussed include Compaction & Jet Grouting, Earth Retention and Shoring, Vibro Compaction & Replacement, Micropiles, Soil Mixing for Deep Basement Excavations, and Pile Driving. Within our range of services, a Ground Modification solution is generally available for the toughest subsurface conditions.
