Permeation grouting is used in any formation that will allow fluid or gas migration. Injection of low viscosity chemical (solution) or particulate (suspension) grouts into in situ soils will lock up granular sand/silts in a formation or stop channeling. Injection can be performed with either electrometric or rigid grouts. In rock formations, grouts can be used for water cutoff, for refining, or slope failure.
Permeation grouting is performed at less than lithostatic pressure, with low viscosity grout, which then penetrates granular soil or fractured bedrock porosity. Some chemical grouts can be, injected with viscosity less than 2 cP, with setting times adjustable up to 30 hours; when set, they are elastic and resistant to most chemicals.
Permeation grouting is typically used to place groundwater cutoff walls through rows of driven pipe. The cutoff is placed in the target zone and does not have to penetrate all the way from the surface like a sheet pile, slurry wall, or line of mixed sodcrete columns. Permeation grouts can also be used to stabilize ground against slope failure and add compressive strength under foundations.
