Abstract

Cement treatment was applied in restoration for a road embankment, at the entrance of the Royal Park Rama 9th, which failed during the final grade level construction. Dutch cone penetration tests were performed in order to obtain soil profile across the road embankment where very soft clay layer was found underneath. Cement slurry was pumped into the very soft to soft clay layers directly under the unstable embankment in order to form a stabilized zone of increasing undrained shear strength. Slope stability analyses by the simplified Bishop's method proved that, after the treatment, the embankment gained higher factor of safety.

Restoration of Road Embankment on Soft Bangkok Clay by Wet Jet Mixing Method

St. Louis, Missouri

Cement treatment was applied in restoration for a road embankment, at the entrance of the Royal Park Rama 9th, which failed during the final grade level construction. Dutch cone penetration tests were performed in order to obtain soil profile across the road embankment where very soft clay layer was found underneath. Cement slurry was pumped into the very soft to soft clay layers directly under the unstable embankment in order to form a stabilized zone of increasing undrained shear strength. Slope stability analyses by the simplified Bishop's method proved that, after the treatment, the embankment gained higher factor of safety.
