Bearing capacity of soils can be increased by compaction and grouting methods.

A method for increasing the bearing capacity of foundation soils for built structures consisting of providing a plurality of holes spaced from each other deep in the soil, and injecting into the soil, through the holes, a substance which expands as a consequence of a chemical reaction, with a potential increase in volume of at least five times the volume of the substance before expansion. The expansion of the substance injected into the soil produces compaction of the contiguous soil.
