    • found: A.H. Beck web site, viewed April 18, 2019(Compaction and Jet Grouting: Grouting is a ground improvement technique utilizing a relatively stiff (low mobility) grout injected at high pressure into a relatively loose granular stratum for densification; typically used to increase bearing pressure and reduce settlement of proposed structures; can be used to re-level structures that have settled, and to densify beneath structures proposed for increased loading. Compaction grouting: bulbs of highly viscous grout are injected in the ground from the base up at a slow injection rate. Jet grouting is a similar bottom up grouting technique, but utilizing very high pressure (4,000 to 6,000 psi) grout injected through small nozzles at very high velocity)
