32 Reinforcement of Subsoil Under the Foundations of Historical Buildings in Cracow Using Deep Injection Techniques
J.J. Domski; Geotechnical Institute, Technical University, Cracow, Poland

A problem of reinforcing the subsoil under the deep foundations of historical buildings belongs to very difficult geotechnological operations at renovating the Old City of Cracow. A technique being used at present with much success is a reinforcement of the subsoil by injections made directly into the ground. The results of works carried out so far are indicative of a universal suitability of this method for a strengthening of the soil under monumental buildings.
