Numerous research efforts have been made in these areas investigating properties of treated soil, behavior of DMM improved ground under static and dynamic conditions, design methods, and execution techniques.
Due to its wide applicability and high improvement effect, the method has become increasingly popular in many countries in Europe, Asia and in the USA. In the past three to four decades, traditional mechanical mixing has been improved to meet changing needs. New types of the technology have also been developed in the last 10 years; e.
The design procedures for the DM methods were standardized across several organizations in Japan and revised several times. Information on these rapid developments will benefit those researchers and practitioners who are involved in ground improvement throughout the world. The book presents the state of the art in Deep Mixing methods, and covers recent technologies, research activities and know-how in machinery, design, construction technology and quality control and assurance.
The Deep Mixing Method is a useful reference tool for engineers and researchers involved in DMM technology everywhere, regardless of local soil conditions and variety in applications. Read more Read less.

This article presents a condensed version of the report. The deep mixing method DMM encompasses a group of related technologies that provide in situ soil treatment. Various materials, usually cementitious, are blended into soils through hollow, rotated shafts with cutting tools, and mixing paddles or augers at the tip.
The materials may be injected in slurry or dry form. The treated soil, or fill mass, generally has a higher strength, lower compressibility, and lower permeability than the virgin soil. Six basic groups of applications for contemporary DMMs have evolved: hydraulic cutoffs, structural walls, ground treatment, ground improvement, liquefaction mitigation, and hazardous materials.
