Microbially induced carbonate precipitation (MICP) involves bacteria to drive calcite precipitation and naturally cement soils, thereby improving soils performance. Experimental studies have shown that bio-cemented specimen can suffer from severe spatial inhomogeneity of the calcite content, leading to large uncertainty in treatment...

Biogrout is a method to strengthen granular soil, which is based on microbial-induced carbonate precipitation. To model the Biogrout process, a reactive transport model is used. Since high flow rates are undesirable for the Biogrout process, the model equations can be solved with a standard Galerkin finite element method. The Biogrout process...

Biogrout is a method for reinforcement of granular soil. In the Biogrout process, calcium carbonate is produced. This solid connects the grains, and therefore the strength of the soil is increased. The calcium carbonate is formed with the use of micro-organisms. Experiments and numerical simulations have been performed to demonstrate the process...
