Improvement Of Bearing Capacity Of Bored Piles By Grouting Method

A method of improvement of a subsoil under bored pile base by injection is presented. The method employs a special chamber attached to the reinforcement at the bottom of the drilled borehole. The chamber is made of semi-permeable textile bag. The injection entered under high pressure into the bag, causes prestressing of subsoil under the pile base. The results of load tests of piles improved in this manner have shown a substantial increase of their capacity together with simultaneous reduction of settlements. This technology has been implemented for four constructions such as trestle bridges in Gdynia and Warszawa and the bridges in Szczecin and Gdansk. The injection effects are shown based on the load test results.
