Although not applied in Turkey, compaction grouting has been used widely in many parts of the world and especially in the USA in foundation engineering for reducing the void ratio of soils, relevelling of settled buildings, underpinning of footings and slabs, controlling settlements, and for mitigation of liquefaction potential of the soils in the last 10 to 15 years. In this study, a theoretical approach regarding compaction grouting has been presented, injection parameters and theological properties of the grout has been correlated and practical applications, especially for increasing liquefaction resistance, have been discussed.
