Course Title: Soil Stabilization Techniques Using Chemical Grout Injection - 1 PDH #PS 20140140
Speaker: Tony Alfano, Uretek Holding
This course will review the technical specifications of commercial chemical grout and its application on soil stabilization. The course will discuss the chemical reaction and the effect on temperature and pressure as it applied to various soil conditions. The chemical injection effectiveness and limitations will be discussed at various depths from 3 feet to 80 feet below grade. We will discuss our solution for the following applications:
• sub-terrain void fill.
• seawall, bulkhead, ground water and barrier containment.
• culvert, spillway, and sewer and dam repair.
• soil stabilization for bridge approaches and rail ballast.
• slab lifting.
Samples of chemically treated soil will be handed out to show its inert effect on the environment as well as its strength/weight ratio.
We will review case studies on chemical grouting applications using national infrastructure, commercial, and residential cases. Technical calculations, timelines, safety, logistics and cost savings will be analyzed for each case study to check for feasibility. The course will conclude with a Q&A session for comparisons to current and historical projects for the attendees.
