The phenomenon of fracturing in sand as a result of compensation grouting was studied. Processes of fracture initiation and propagation were explained and a parametric study was conducted in order to investigate the factors that cause sand fracturing to occur. Experimental results indicate that fracture initiation requires the existence of a local inhomogeneity around the injection position. Grout mixture in terms of water-cement ratio and fines content had major roles in sand fracturing, whereas injection rate had a minor influence under the tested conditions. © 2009 Taylor & Francis Group.
