Abstract

Rock excavation for a 7,200-square-meter building site in Saudi Arabia intercepted a large cavity underlying approximately half the site. Relocation was impossible; therefore, a grouting program was selected to modify the site to accept the allowable design load of 2.1 mega pascals. Due to the extreme depth of the cavity, the modification was limited to a depth of 25 meters under the building.

Support over Cavities of Unknown Depth for an Underground Facility

Rock excavation for a 7,200-square-meter building site in Saudi Arabia intercepted a large cavity underlying approximately half the site. Relocation was impossible; therefore, a grouting program was selected to modify the site to accept the allowable design load of 2.1 mega pascals.
