Deep mixing method has been applies to improve soft ground for over 25 years in Japan. However, the possibility of deterioration of treated soils has not been studied in detail. In this paper, long-term strength change of treated soil was investigated. The paper consists of three parts. In the first part, the strength characteristic of in-situ treated soils after 17 years is investigated. In the second part, ca (Calcium) leashing phenomenon from treated soil to surrounding soil is investigated in situ. And in the third part, the numerical prediction method for Ca leaching from treated soil has sufficient strength characteristics, although it is slightly influenced by Ca leaching. The related property change to Ca leaching from treated soil can be expressed using numerical analysis considering ion migration model and ca leaching model.
