Re: strengthing soils under existing footing?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Don't know about Baker Hughes, but Howard Baker
(company) is a good resource for ground improvement as
well.

You may consider an option of driving a steel pile
adjacent to the footing
and attaching the footing to the pile. That is, if it
is feasible to drive
a pile.

The feasibility of injection grout to improve soil
capacity as well as the
cost to do it depends on the soil type. While a sandy
soil will absorb
quite a lot of grout, a clayey soil may refuse to
accept anything. You may
check with a local geotech. If you know the soil type,
Baker Hughes might
be able to suggest a cost effective solution. It is
one of the experts in
ground modification techniques.
