The State of Practice in Deep Mixing Methods
Masaaki Terashi

The deep mixing method is often classified into two, dry method and wet method and wet method based on the hardening agent (binder). The former utilizes the water-binder slurry. Naturally there are some differences in the execution machines between dry and wet methods. But to the authorís knowledge, there is no substantial difference in the characteristics of treated soils between them. The apparent difference in the design procedure and application comes from the purpose of improvement, which in turn gives rise to the difference in the installation patterns and in the order of strength required. The present article summarizes the current state of the practice of deep mixing and discusses the tasks for the coming decade mostly based on the experience gained in Japan.
