Soil stabilization in Florida has notably been used in sinkhole remediation as one part of the process for many years. There are two processes used in soil stabilization.
This first utilizes plural component materials which are injected at depth and expand, compressing soils and increasing soil density. This process is performed when soil testing identifies supporting soils which, in their current state, cannot support the load of structures or slab on grade concrete. This process is similar to compaction grouting using cementitious grout but simply using a different material, delivery system and with different in situ characteristics ending in in the same result.
The second process is permeation grouting which is used in grout curtains, slope stabilization, soil consolidation and as a leak stop material. The materials used can be either super expansive or very low expansion and selected according to the scope of work to be performed.
