1 Scope
This document establishes general principles for the execution of jet grouting works.
NOTE The jet grouting processes is distinguished from the grouting processes covered by EN 12715.

7.1.3 Wherever the borehole collars are located below the water table or artesian head, special measures shall be taken into account, in order to avoid piping through the boreholes.
7.1.4 The specified physical properties and geometry of jet grouted structures shall be defined in the design.
7.1.5 Site conditions which may influence the working sequence of the elements shall be specified.
7.1.6 When relevant, the detailed execution sequence should be shown on the printed or electronic execution drawings and/ or models.
7.1.7 Where no comparable previous experience is available representative preliminary field tests shall be carried out, using the equipment, materials and techniques proposed for the main jet grouting works.
7.1.8 To ensure a consistent result in the preliminary in situ test, at least one jet grouted element should be constructed with a given working procedure. In significantly heterogeneous ground conditions more test elements and different working procedures should be necessary for approval.
7.1.9 Where the jet grouted material is to be subjected to aggressive or temperature sensitive environment, the preliminary in situ tests should be preceded by specified laboratory tests on samples of the soil to be treated and the grout, mixed in proportions encompassing the working range
7.1.10 The determination of the characteristic material strength as part of the supervision, testing and monitoring shall be made by testing of samples, preferably of sample quality class A and B according to Annex B, taken from the jet grouting body itself either by core drilling, fresh sampling or from spoil return.
