Abstract:
Tip grouting shafts and piles is a practical solution to increase the load capacity of deep foundations, but controlling the quality of the tip bulb shape is a major concern. Grouting methods with drilled shafts and jetted piles have been practiced for decades and proven to be extremely effective. Grouting is suitable in all types of soil and can be adapted to various size shafts and piles. The University of Florida and FDOT are ever improving the reliability and effectiveness of grouted shafts and piles with their ongoing research. More specifically, side grouting prior to tip grouting on drilled shafts. Small scale, large scale, and full scale test have been or will be carried out to confirm the effectiveness of this three stage grouting process. Results from previous tests show the side grouting prior to tip grouting process yields a more desirable tip bulb shape and greater axial and torsional capacity than tip grouting alone. Grouting shafts and piles is potentially less expensive than traditional shaft construction and driven piles. With an increase in capacity and decrease in expenses, this ground breaking technique is undoubtedly going to be common practice with all deep foundations in the future. ( en )
